Coast Packing turns 100 years.

An integral part of Southern California’s restaurant, baking and food industries, Coast Packing Company, the number one supplier of animal fat shortenings in the Western United States, officially turns 100.

With a legacy a century in the making, Coast Packing maintains ties with its customers, partners and suppliers that are broad, deep, and often go back decades. The company was founded in 1922 as a livestock and meat‐packing business and expanded over the years into a regional food‐industry powerhouse.

A trip down memory lane.
