In 1920, Arthur W Perdue founded his poultry company.  In 1925, the Perdues switched from eggs to selling baby chicks to other farmers.

In 1939, Frank Perdue, joined his father’s business after leaving college.

In the 40’s a poultry disease destroyed most of the company’s flock and threatened the family business.  So Arthur switched from selling layer chicks to meat bird chicks, aligning his business with the emerging broiler industry.

In the 50’s the company was incorporated as A.W. Perdue & Son.  Frank took over as head of the company. 

In 1968, Perdue opened its first processing plant to process chickens.  Frank decided to market his products as superior and the Perdue brand was born.

In 1991, Jim Perdue, Frank’s Son, is named chairman.  In 1994, Frank took over the advertising spokesman role.

Perdue AgriBusiness became an independent operating company and continued to grow outside sales, including exports, establishing itself as a global player.

Through its Perdue Transportation Incorporated fleet, the company’s drivers traveled more than 20 million miles in 2011 to deliver food products safely and on time to its customers. 

Perdue Farms is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for everyone we touch through innovative food and agricultural products. Since our beginning on Arthur Perdue’s farm in 1920, to our expansion into agribusiness and the introduction of the PERDUE® brand of chicken and turkey under Frank Perdue, and continuing with our third generation of leadership with Chairman Jim Perdue, we’ve remained family owned and family operated. We are the parent company of Perdue Foods and Perdue AgriBusiness. Through our PERDUE®, HARVESTLAND® and COLEMAN NATURAL® and COLEMAN ORGANIC® food brands; agricultural products and services; and stewardship and corporate responsibility programs, we are working to become the most-trusted name in food and agricultural products.
