Morning Star began as a trucking company in 1970, and with the addition of our three state of the art processing facilities, has now become the largest tomato processor in the world. Our Mission is to produce tomato products and services which consistently achieve the quality and service expectations of our customers in a cost effective, environmentally responsible manner.
We use innovative thought to bring together the best technologies to make our manufacturing processes as reliable and streamlined as possible. We harvest and haul all our own tomatoes to improve the efficiency of the logistics of bringing tomatoes from the field to the plant, ensuring optimal freshness, and lowering the cost of having them delivered. Our larger trailers mean fewer trucks moving between the fields and factories. In order to ensure consistency in the batches of products we produce, we use one line for our products.
At all Morning Star facilities, we emphasize innovative thought, and we strive to use available resources and technology to their fullest potential in order to continuously improve quality, productivity and service for our customer. As important as quality, service and price are, we know there is more. To remain competitive for the long term, we must be innovative. That is why we rigorously maintain our position as the major force developing and implementing new and improved technology in our industry.
Morning Star offers a full line of tomato ingredients in 55-gallon drums and 300-gallon bins. Our operation is sophisticated enough to meet the exacting performance standards of customers looking for paste, diced, purees, ketchup, and crushed products. The flexibility of our operations is unsurpassed in the industry. On staff we have engineers and technicians who can analyze your process and recommend ways our product will work best within it. Our ability to meet specifications of even the most unusual products allows us to better serve all customers. Morning Star only selects the finest people to fill its positions to assure exceptional service. People who can think on their feet and solve problems quickly. After all “Excellence Through Commitment” is our moto.
