Promising Future for Ellison's and J&B Group

Ellison Meat Company is a leading processor of portioned controlled beef and pork products. Ellison's was founded in 1934 and has been a part of the Pipestone community since the early 80's and moved to its current facility in 1990.

The "J&B Way" is a time-tested principle based on the foundation of respect for all J&B associates, customers, consumers, and community. Since J&B's acquisition of Ellison's, many positive changes have occurred for the Pipestone workforce. Along with a strong belief in the great worth of its associates, J&B also brought with it an enhanced benefits and compensation package.
