In all that we do, IDF™ remains focused on the close connection between people and the quality foods we were meant to enjoy. One of our most fundamental needs as well as the foundation for a healthy and happy life, food inspires our enduring commitment to our customers, their customers, our team members, and the communities in which we operate.
By nature, IDF’s high-quality chicken ingredients connect us with families in our Southwest Missouri community and around the globe. This connection reinforces our commitment to providing the excellent service, reliable resources, and superior-quality natural food ingredients for which we are known – ingredients that provide a real, wholesome foundation for real food.
The IDF Commitment
Quality and Innovation
Continually seek input from customers and suppliers and meet or exceed their expectations with consistent high-quality ingredients and service while providing new and improved chicken ingredients through innovative research and process improvement
Ethics and Safety
Promote the wellbeing of all team members by maintaining a moral and ethical environment wherein we treat everyone fairly and consistently and provide a safe workplace
Partnership and Community
Form mutually supportive, long-term relationships with both our food industry partners and communities by being a good neighbor and recognizing our environmental and civic responsibility
Agriculture is going to become more important every year as there are more people to be fed, not only in Missouri and the United States, but also throughout the world.
—William (Bill) Darr, founder of IDF
Nourishing Our Communities
IDF is proud to operate, serve, and live in Southwest Missouri, and we gladly support the communities that have enabled our company to flourish.
While ensuring the availability of IDF’s wholesome, delicious food ingredients can make a real difference in what people eat, the desire to help goes far beyond the IDF mission. To further support those in need, founder Bill Darr and his family created the Darr Family Foundation (DFF) in 2002.
