Who we are

The Duke Culture

Bringing purpose, service, and innovation to the ready-to-eat space


Our people and your product are our purpose (say that five times fast!)

The Duke culture is one of faith, service, and the development of people. Our mission is about so much more than just making products - our people and those we impact are a product of our culture. Through focus on our people, and from lifting people within our organization, we are able to bring that same level of service to our clients and community.


Meet the Team

Duke Brands is dedicated to a culture of inclusiveness, diversity, and employee growth. Most importantly, we build our organization around people that are built to serve. Our customer-facing team is comprised of driven individuals dedicated to innovation, client service, operational efficiency, and above all, quality in everything we do. Best is the standard in all we do.

Our company culture is about growth of our people and the impact we have on the community. We strive for 100% organizational participation in a number of community and charity initiatives, and focus on an environment of stewardship from Executive leadership down.
