Business Philosophy

For more than 70 years, McKee Foods has been blessed with a reputation for ethical, O.D. McKee Quoteresponsible business practices. Our founders, O.D. and Ruth McKee, instinctively knew that great companies are built on the principle of doing the right thing each and every day, and treating business partners, customers, and employees honestly, fairly, and with respect.

Values We Embrace

Our Guiding Values are a very real and very visible part of our company culture. The high ethical standards represented in these values are expected from employees at every level of our organization. If there is any one thing that serves as the backbone of our business philosophy, it is our Guiding Values. These values are composed of six tenets:

  • Showing respect for our People.
  • Conducting Business with Integrity.
  • Taking Responsibility for our actions.
  • Providing products of the highest Quality.
  • Focusing on Productivity at every level of business.
  • Pursuing and supporting Innovation every day.

McKee Foods is still owned and operated by the McKee family. O.D and Ruth's children and grandchildren lead the enterprise now. We've grown tremendously, but the company's business dealings are still heavily influenced by what our leaders learned by watching O.D. and Ruth. The example they set remains the foundation of our business practices today.
