Our Story

Santo Realbuto, an Italian immigrant, began Wonder Meats, Inc. nearly half a century ago as a small butcher shop and storefront in Manhattan. Word began to spread that Wonder Meats had the unique ability to produce consistently quality products. These same core values that founded the company remain the backbone of what continues to be the most reliable meat manufacturing company in the tri-state area.

In 1983, when Santo passed away, his family came together to run the family business. Steve, who runs the company today, continues to bring the same affinity for hard-work that Santo had instilled into him.

Over the next ten years, growth was slow but consistent as Wonder Meats worked tirelessly to find their niche within the industry. Wonder grew it’s credibility for producing the highest quality meat products and providing unparalleled service.

In 1994, Wonder Meats moved to a 24,000 sq. ft. manufacturing plant in Carlstadt, NJ where we remain today. We maintain the same core set of values that have guided our business practices since the very first time Santo opened the doors. We only use the best ingredients we can find.

Our quality and safety control programs are remarkably rigid. And, our competitive pricing reflects our values.

Wonder Meats, Inc. is a leading manufacturer of quality meat products—having achieved our leadership position almost entirely by word of mouth. We’re known for providing superior service, often going above and beyond to satisfy customer needs.

Today's team is committed to the same excellence that Wonder Meats has built a reputation around. Here is just a piece of our family!
