The Staff at Innovative Foods
Innovative Foods Custom Meat Processing is owned and operated by Dave and Tami Ellicott, who have an extensive background in the meat business.
Dave’s interest in meats started early on, while working for the local locker during high school. While at Colorado State University earning his B.S. in Animal Science, he was a member of the Meats Judging Team. Throughout his career, his experiences shaped his passions and the business he co-owns today. His background includes Fresh Meat Procurement for King Soopers and Branded Beef Program development.
Tami’s wide-ranging business experience is the engine for the quality customer service you receive. She manages the front of the plant and is typically the first face or voice you encounter as she expertly handles business operations, customer service, cutting instructions, retail front, and whatever else comes her way.
Dave and Tami began Innovative Foods in 2005 in Denver, processing for food service and restaurants.This was the start of developing business relationships, prior to the purchase of their own processing facility in Evans, CO in 2007.
Over time, the business has grown and changed tremendously, but a few things remain constant:
- It is our goal to be the best in the business.
- We consistently strive to put out high quality products, matched with excellent customer service.
- We believe in the value of family – from family farmers and ranchers who bring us their livestock to process, to our customers, to our own family.
W are proud to say we have several employees who have been with us since the plant opened in 2007.
