Safety Fresh Foods Relocates Operations to Plymouth, Wisconsin

Safety Fresh Foods, owned by Sammark Holdings, will relocate its production center to the former Borden’s plant on the south side of Plymouth, Wisconsin. The facility will incorporate new technology and high pressure pasteurization to help ensure food is free of harmful pathogens.

HPP is a cold pasteurization technique by which products, already sealed in its final package, are introduced to a vessel and subjected to a high level of isostatic pressure transmitted by water. First introduced in Europe, this technology is in use by many companies, however, none located in or near Sheboygan County.

Operated by Sam Maglio, Jr. and Mark Maglio, Sammark Holdings is a Wisconsin-based food manufacturing and marketing entity involved in bakery, confection, juice, sauce, and alcohol products.

“We are thrilled to be a part of this vibrant area of successful food companies,” noted Sam Maglio. “This area is renowned for food innovation and we look forward to supporting continued economic growth.”

“People here have been very welcoming, and I certainly am pleased to be part of supporting a safe food chain,” noted Mark Maglio.

According to Sheboygan County Economic Development Corporation senior financing for the company was provided by First Business Bank with a minor investment through both the City of Plymouth and Sheboygan County revolving loan funds. SCEDC worked with the Sammark to help complete the application process, as well as introductions to area food manufacturers.

“It has been a pleasure working with Sam and Mark,” noted SCEDC’s Business Development Manager Jim Schuessler. “As a closely-held multi-generational company they are very similar to existing companies here that have our economy soaring. HPP will both help support safe foods for the consumer as well as future product innovation.”
