A Century of Omaha Steaks: The Story of America’s Original Butcher
June 10 – November 11, 2017

In 1898, J.J. and B.A. Simon journeyed to the U.S. to escape religious persecution and arrived in Omaha. They began working in the meat business and eventually started their own company – Table Supply Meat Company, which was renamed Omaha Steaks International in 1966. Family-owned since 1917, today Omaha Steaks employs over 1,800 people and its facilities include three manufacturing plants, two distribution centers and a freezer warehouse. This exhibition pays homage to this fifth generation family business and will showcase photographs, archival documents and historic artifacts from the company archive
