Welcome to Miniat

We are an innovative leader in custom-crafted protein solutions. As a partner to some of the most recognized brands, you have most likely enjoyed our premium cooked proteins when visiting your favorite restaurants or eating a prepared meal at home.

As a family-owned and operated business, Miniat is beholden to no one but our customers, employees, and the community that we are Driven to ServeTM. As a family business, decisions that drive long-term, sustainable growth, are informed by our core values.

For more than 20 years, Miniat has called South Holland, IL our home. Located 25 miles south of Chicago, our South Holland location houses our executive and sales offices, Culinary Center, Research & Development Lab, as well as our primary manufacturing facility.

In 2020, Miniat expanded our manufacturing capabilities with the opening of our Carrollton, GA plant, located 45 miles west of Atlanta. This new facility allows for increased capacity, new and unique product capabilities, as well as food safety advantages through redundant locations.
