Monogram Food Solutions makes its products out of the letters M, E, A, and T. A manufacturer of meat and meat snack products, the company produces beef jerky, sausage, hot dogs, bacon, and other processed products. Its brands include Circle B, King Cotton, and Trail's Best Meat Snacks; through special licensing agreements, Monogram also sells Jeff Foxworthy Jerky Products, NASCAR Jerky and Steak Strips, and Bass Pro Uncle Buck's Licensed Products. The company operates facilities in Chandler, Minnesota; Muncie, Indiana; and Martinsville, Virginia and distributes its products nationally. Founded in 2004, Monogram was formed through the merger of assets (King Cotton and Circle B) previously owned by Sara Lee Corp.
Beginning in 2010, the company began manufacturing and selling meat snacks for the energy drink maker, DNA Beverages Corporation, under the DNA brand. Geared toward a younger consumer, the DNA beef products gives Monogram a larger demographic for its products.
Since its founding, the company has quickly built itself up by buying established meat product manufacturers and processing plants. In 2009 it acquired three companies, including beef jerky maker Wild Bill's Foods and Al Pete's Meats (and the Pete's Pride brand name). It also acquired the Hannah's, Bull's, O'Brien's, and Dakota meat snack brands from meat processing company, American Foods Group. – less
