President's Message

Guiding our growth and building a strong future.

Larry Bowes

Balford is a strong leader in the industry and we are known for our commitment to providing our customers with the highest quality products, customer service and value added programs.

As a progressive food distribution company, distributing products throughout Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware and Maryland, we are aware of the ever-changing needs of our customer. In addition to our core dairy and food distribution business, we offer a supply chain program to those regional and national accounts which look to Balford for a more comprehensive approach to their distribution needs. Thoughtful planning combined with cutting edge technology has enabled Balford to craft cost effective, custom solutions for these customers. These expanded relationships, along with the growth of our core business have enabled Balford to grow significantly over the past ten years.

With ever increasing energy costs, comprehensive supply chain programs are now, and will be in the future, an essential part of successful businesses.

As you visit our web site, we welcome the opportunity to show you why customers choose Balford as their supplier of choice.

On behalf of the Balford team, we thank you for taking the time to visit us online.
