Company Description

Our story began when a Russian immigrant by the name of Julius Silvert set out to educate himself on the food industry at a small agricultural school in New Jersey. After years of studying his passion, Julius decided to start his own business, where he’d sell simple products like eggs and butter through the storefront. As the business started to grow, Julius began to process bulk quantities into sellable portions for some of the biggest names in Philadelphia’s wholesale industry, making a name for himself along the way.

Now in our fourth generation, Julius Silvert operates using state-of-the-art technology and facilities, servicing dining establishments throughout eight states. But even as we continue to evolve and grow, our mission remains the same—to provide our customers with unparalleled service and ingredients. It’s what we’ve done for the past 100 years and will continue to do for the next hundred.
