We’re Ellsworth Foods, a company dedicated to providing families in the Southeast with the highest quality, most nutritious, and best tasting food available. If you live in North or South Carolina, you may know us by the brand Southern Foods at Home. The rest of the South may know us as Blue Ribbon Foods.
Why the dual brands? Well in 2006, our parent company, Ellsworth Foods, purchased the home delivery division of Southern Foods from the Nussbaum family. Southern Foods had such a terrific reputation in the Carolinas that we opted to retain the name. The Blue Ribbon brand was purchased by Ellsworth Foods in 2016, with a similarly strong reputation of providing southerners with custom cuts of quality beef, pork, and chicken since 1981. For a while, our brand identities served distinct geographical areas, but now both imprints are being used interchangeably along with our corporate name, Ellsworth Foods.
At Ellsworth Foods we strive to live up to the legacy created by the Nussbaums, by treating our customers and team members like family. We hope to serve your family for many years.
