Our history

Gold Star Foods Inc. began operations in 1966 as a meat distributor to the Los Angeles area.


Gold Star Meat Company was a family-owned business and was purchased in 1978 where the focus of the business shifted from restaurants to school districts in the Southern California area.


To better reflect the changing inventory, the company name was changed to Gold Star Foods in 1983, and most recently to “Gold Star Foods Inc.”

Core Values

Our Circle of values contains attributes that are both a result of the one before it, and a catalyst for what comes after it. No single attribute can live on its own, and no element takes priority over any another. It’s a symbiotic relationship that thrives as the four elements blend into one movement.
