  • A proud member of the Fairbury Community for over 40 years

    Westin Packaged Meats has been a pioneer in the bacon industry through innovative technologies and an impressive product line. In 2012, we are once again leading the way by investing, developing and opening our new Resource Recovery Center & Water Treatment Facility.

    The new facility is designed with future expansion in mind. Recovered bacon grease is burned in our boilers helping to conserve natural gas and reduce energy costs. The general contractor and subcontractor for the project are locally-owned Fairbury businesses. A Fairbury resident and certified operator will manage the Resource Recovery Center.

    Feaster Foods, a division of Westin Packaged Meats, (Fairbury Foods) cooks up millions of pounds real bacon each year to produce Real Bacon Bits, a Fairbury tradition since 1969. The Fairbury production facility is located on “Bacon Road” (2nd Street) near the Rock Island Railroad Depot Museum on Fairbury’s southern edge. Only the highest-quality bacon is used to make Fairbury bacon bits, which are processed on state-of-the-art, German-engineered equipment, according to the highest food safety requirements.

    Fairbury Foods cooks up more than 80,000 lbs of bacon each day and produces real bacon bits and pieces for wholesale and retail sale. The bacon bits produced in the Fairbury plant can be found on the shelves of the nation’s largest grocery outlets under several different brand names. Real bacon bits are also packaged and sold in bulk to the foodservice industry and can be found on restaurant salad bars and as a topping for pizza. As one of the nation’s largest producers of real bacon bits, chances are strong that you’ve eaten either bacon bits or pieces that were produced in the Fairbury facility.

    Fairbury Foods is also the nation’s largest producer of imitation bacon bits at its secondary location, situated several blocks away, closer to the Fairbury downtown historic district. Imitation bacon bits produced at this facility are made from home-grown soybeans and flavored for a smoky bacon taste. The imitation bacon bits are a healthy and tasty alternative to real bacon bits and  have been Certified Kosher by the Greek Orthodox Union. Over 4 million pounds of imitation bacon bits are produced annually in this state-of-the-art production facility.
