You may have singled out pâté as everything you need to know about Alexian, but the truth is there’s much more to us than meets the eye (or shall we say, plate). Here, we highlight five tidbits of trivia to ponder as you munch away at (hopefully our) pâté!
We’re a Women-Owned Business
Women are behind many successful and growing companies— and Alexian Pâté is one of them.
We are certified as a Women Owned Business, by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), and we will be celebrating our 39th anniversary this year. Not to toot our own horn, but we’d like to take this moment to quote Queen Bey and say… Who run the world? Girls!
We’re Also a Mother/Daughter Business
Yes, it’s true: Alexian is run by mother-daughter duo, Laurie and Alexandra. In fact, last May, we actually explored what really goes into a mother-daughter business — and how it affects their relationship — via our Mother’s Day blog post, “Mother’s Day with Alexian Pâté.”
We Love Community
We believe in helping others and supporting communities. We make regular donations to our local food banks, support national programs which provide assistance to those in need by way of home cooked meals, and donate to disaster recovery programs.
In addition, our pâtés are packaged in printed cardboard sleeves that carry the seal of the Forest Stewardship Council®, certifying that the sourcing of materials promotes responsible and sustainable forest management to support local communities. The corrugated cartons used to ship Alexian products are made from recycled materials and printed with water-based inks.
We Stand by Humane Farm Animal Care
A question we often get us asked here at Alexian about our meat-based products is: “Are the animals humanely raised?” The answer is yes!
Each farm and ranch from which we purchase our meat ingredients, practices good animal husbandry. Their animals are treated humanely, live comfortably, and live stress-free. They have access to the outdoors to roam freely as weather permits; they live in minimal confinement and have adequate space to move and perform the functions natural to their species; they have access to food and water and protection from the elements; and their diet is balanced with the proper nutrients and is free from any animal by-product
We Keep It Natural
All of our pâtés — yes, all — are 100% natural and feature no artificial colors, no preservatives, and no fillers. Additionally, the vendors from which we source the meats used in our pâtés certify that they are free from added hormones and antibiotics.
