History

Sahlen's HistorySahlen Packing Company was founded in 1869 in Buffalo, New York as a family business. Company founder Joseph Sahlen dedicated himself to one guiding principle: only the freshest and highest quality meat products would bear the proud Sahlen name.

Today - in addition to being the name behind the Buffalo area's favorite hot dogs and holiday hams- Sahlen's has grown from our Western New York roots to offer our "Old Fashioned" Smokehouse Ham and Turkey Breast in over 15 states.

At company headquarters in Buffalo, NY, we operate a state-of-the-art processing facility which we continually update and expand to satisfy customer demands for our premium quality meat products.

Still Sahlen family owned and operated, we continue our dedication to the old-fashioned idea of providing you with the finest products available.

As the fifth generation Sahlen enters the business, we pledge our commitment to offer you our best.
