About Us

Columbia Empire is a fourth generation family owned business that began operations in the 1920s in downtown Portland. The company has been operating from our current location since 1962 in Southeast Portland. We are dedicated to our customers and offer a full line of beef, pork, poultry, veal, lamb and so much more.

Current operations include servicing more than 500 accounts in Oregon and Southwest Washington. We have built strong long term relationships with our customers and suppliers for mutual benefit, based on trust and consistency. Columbia Empire offers full service processing with complete portion control cutting programs for beef, lamb, and pork. In house butchering and grinding allows us to maintain the high quality our customers have come to expect. Our selection and quality of products is just one way we help our customers stay ahead in an ever-changing marketplace.

We have the size and ability to purchase at a level allowing us to compete with other food service vendor choices you may have, but are able and willing, to provide a level of service that others just can’t compete with.
