Soaring sales and ever
increasing demand confirmed the
foresight of this thinking...
During this time, Cameco's importing business
grew enormously by buying and selling Ham Products directly from
Poland, Belgium, Ireland, Holland, Denmark, Yugoslavia and Canada...Canned
Tuna Fish, Pineapple, Tomato Products and Mushrooms from such
countries as China, Hong Kong, Holland, Thailand, Indonesia,
Malaysia and the Philippines.
In 1961, Cameco began slicing Ham and Turkey
into retail Luncheon Meat packages. Over the years, Cameco built
a distribution network that extended from Coast to Coast, Mexico
and Puerto Rico, with three distinct sales operating divisions,
Retail/Sliced Luncheon Meats, Food Service (portion Sliced Meats,
Tuna, Mushrooms and Deli Hams) and Warehouse/Club (bulk Sliced
Meats and Deli Products).
Today, Cameco is focused on its core business,
which has transformed us into today's "sliced luncheon meat
powerhouse"... having one business; Slicing, Packaging and
selling Ham and Turkey Luncheon Meat items to the nation's top
supermarket chains under their branded names. We currently produce
these items in various qualities, sizes and packages.
Cameco is eager, aggressive and committed
to assisting our customers in building future sales and
profits. We see vigorous growth in the years ahead as new
channels of distribution are opened with our fine quality
