Keystone Brand Meats has been owned and operated by four generations of the Dorley family. The company was established in 1964 by Raymond L Dorley and his son Raymond B Dorley. Originally, the business raised beef on the family farm, and processed the beef to supply restaurants and grocery stores throughout Ohio and Indiana. In 1980, Dave Dorley became the third generation owner/operator. Dave built a new beef processing facility, upgraded the entire operation to U.S.D.A standards, and built a meat cannery.
Today, Dave’s son Pete Dorley serves as President of the company. Today, they source beef from local farms, and process for local customers just like they have done for generations. That part of the business continues to thrive. At the same time, distribution of canned meats and soup base is expanding throughout the United States. In recent years they have expanded the cannery, built a soup base production facility, and added several items to the Keystone product line in response to customer requests. Although they have grown and diversified over the past fifty years, the core commitment has remained unchanged: To serve customers with the highest quality all natural meats.
