OAKWOOD, GA. (SEPTEMBER 8, 2022) – Wayne-Sanderson Farms has unveiled a new brand identity and logo following the recent merger of the two industry leaders. The company’s new identifying mark was designed to resonate the shared values and business objectives of what is now the third-largest poultry producer in the nation.
“It’s an exciting time for our company, our employees and our customers,” said Clint Rivers, Wayne-Sanderson Farms president and CEO. “Bringing two of the best companies in the business together positions us for more sustainable operations, more competitive opportunities and long-term growth for our employees and our business. Our new brand reflects that ambition.”
The new mark is a strong departure from the legacy logos of both former companies, creatively constructed to reflect their evolution into a unified, cohesive operation with mutual principles and ideals. Retaining the equity both companies have built over decades of reputation-building operation was central to the development of the new company brand.
“Poultry is in everything we do,” said Rivers. “While this rebranding is a big change, our core values and mission haven’t changed. This new logo portrays who we are as a team and what we bring to the market.”
Prior to the merger, both companies held strong market share in distinct categories. Wayne Farms focused on restaurant and foodservice segments while Sanderson Farms enjoyed a strong retail presence. With the integration, Wayne-Sanderson Farms is now positioned to give customers and consumers alike a wide range of product choices by taking advantage of the respective strengths and assets of both companies.
