The Sahlen’s Promise

Providing high-quality products to our valued customers has been the our pledge since 1869. That promise still guides the Sahlen Packing Company today.

From our home in Buffalo, New York, we proudly produces Sahlen’s premier Smokehouse Hot Dogs, Sausage, Bologna, Braunschwieger, Ham, Turkey and Chicken as well as private label deli meats. We continually strive for improvement in all aspects of our business, from manufacturing to customer service.

Sahlen’s and Safety

Sahlen’s proudly serves hot dogs and deli meats produced with you and our family in mind. Maximum food safety is our number-one priority. We have advanced systems in place to ensure top-level quality for all our products – and we're proving it every day.

Here’s how:

  • In addition to our USDA inspection requirements, we follow the Safe Quality Food Program (SQF) as a higher metric for measuring our performance.

    The SQF Program is recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative as a rigorous, credible food safety management system. We sought and obtained our level 2 certification in 2012. The implementation and monitoring of the SQF requirements requires the industry’s highest standards of preparation, processing and handling. We believe our customers’ safety is worth the work.

The next time you're at your local deli, grocery store or supermarket, remember the Sahlen's pledge and ask for our high-quality meat products by name.
