Dan Hildebrandt, President & CEO of Farmers Union Industries, in collaboration with the FUI Board of Directors announced on May 15, 2020 an essential employee payment of $2,000 will be paid to all employees who reported to their respective locations. As an essential business, we are grateful to have continued somewhat “business as usual” operations within all FUI businesses. This is certainly an unprecedented time and I am proud of the folks who have continued to push through, every day. Although we have no definite end to the current state, these past few weeks have proven what I have always believed – the employees of FUI are committed to showing up, even in the most difficult times. Farmers Union Industries is the parent company of Artex Manufacturing, Central Bi Products, Midwest Grease, Northland Choice, Performance Pet Products and Redwood Farms Meat Processors.
