About KHI

KHI Food Brands, based in Burlington, Kentucky, is a VALUE-ADDED FOOD MANUFACTURER.  

Formerly known as KHI Foods Inc., the company was founded in 2001 by Millard Long, who has over 30 years of food processing and packaging experience for nationally recognized brands.  Founded as a small local honey producer – KHI Foods Inc. expanded to include tomato and vegetable based items.  Since then KHI has continued to diversify and increase production at a substantial rate.

In 2019, KHI Foods Inc. was purchased by the group behind Pompilio’s Pasta Sauces and became KHI Food Brands.  Since 2019 KHI Food Brands business has expanded to include a strong proprietary brand portfolio, Co-Packing for small to large businesses, processing of fruits and vegetables for farmers, school and institution food packaging, and providing branding, marketing, and support to companies and individuals looking to take their products to market.
