Fred Berghorst

A Family

Fred Berghorst learned the importance of keeping deadlines and commitments while a city bus driver in Grand Rapids, Michigan. With an eye for entrepreneurship, Fred saw a need to supply the local grocery stores of West Michigan with fresh chickens at a moment’s notice. He and his wife, Minnie, started Berghorst Poultry deeply dedicated to delivering quality poultry at a great price. Now, three generations later, Berghorst Food Service (BFS) has a diverse product line and a passion for our customers to experience that same dedication to excellent customer service.
