Loewenstein Poultry is riding
a national consumer trend. More
Americans are eating turkey —
close to 18 pounds per person per
year, according to the U.S. De-
partment of Agriculture.
Nationally, Americans con-
sume 68 million turkeys during
Thanksgiving and Christmas.
It is becoming more socially ac-

you send them to something they
can take home and share with
their family. The turkey serves

During quieter times, Loewen-
stein Poultry also owns and runs
Michigan Cold Storage in Taylor
and acts as a food broker for two
Fortune 500 food companies, as
well as other food manufacturers
and poultry processors.
The 1994 holiday season al-

says is largely a recession-proof
business. Companies give gift
turkeys in both good and bad eco-

Loewenstein Poultry plans to

and New England and Canada
in the coming years.
The family would like to see
the company prosper into its sec-
ond century with Loewensteins
still at the helm.
"I would love to see my son get
in the business," says Ms.
Loewenstein Roberts. "I've had
such a wonderful experience."
