About KHI

KHI Food Brands, based in Burlington, Kentucky, is a VALUE-ADDED FOOD PRODUCER. We provide expertise in small batch production and go-to-market solutions that enables our clients to achieve continued growth.

KHI Foods was founded in 2001 by Millard Long as a small local honey producer. Since 2001, KHI has evolved into experts at producing tomato and vegetable based items and has continued to diversify and increase production. Today, Millard puts his 30+ years of nationally recognized food processing and packaging experience to work for each of the products we produce.

In 2019, KHI Foods Inc. was purchased by the owners of the Pompilio’s restaurant and pasta sauce brand and became KHI Food Brands. Since 2019, KHI Food Brand’s business has expanded to include a growing proprietary brand portfolio. We provide co-packing for small to large operators. We process fruits and vegetables for farmers, schools and institutional food packaging. We also provide brand development and marketing support to companies and individuals looking to take their products to market.

KHI is pleased to be a member and supporter of the Kentucky Proud Program, which connects local farmers with manufacturers. KHI Food Brands always seeks quality local fruits and vegetables to use in our products.

As an experienced co-packer, we have helped transform many farmers’ recipes into local and regional household names. We are experts at replicating and scaling your authentic recipe in a way that will have your customers asking for more. We offer support every step of the way, from brand development and marketing to production, distribution, logistics and beyond.
