FROM LITEHOUSE: As an employee-owned company, Litehouse always strives to serve our Employee Owners, our customers and our consumers. For 57 years, we’ve been in the business of bringing food to people’s tables and, during this pandemic, we have a heightened sense of responsibility as part of the food supply chain to ensure the health and safety of our Employee Owners and the continued supply of our products to customers and consumers across the country. Because of the continuous changes happening around the world, we’ve reimagined the way we do business and give back to our communities.
