Welcome to UW Provision & Local Source Foods

UW Provision Company is one of the largest and most complete providers of fresh, frozen and dry good food products in the Midwest.

Grocery stores, supermarkets, restaurants, meat processors and institutions are among its valued customers. UW Provision specializes in the manufacture and distribution of fresh and frozen beef, pork, lamb, veal, chicken and seafood products. In addition we also carry a full line of value added items such as cheese and dairy, smoked products and precooked items. At approximately 100,000 square feet, UW Provision’s plant is one of the largest in the industry. Massive freezers and warehouses allow UW Provision to make opportunity buys, as well as stock a large inventory of items. This ensures availability of products on a timely basis to benefit a variety of customers.

UW Provision’s “The Meat Market Store” is located adjacent to the warehouse. Touted as ‘Dane County’s Best Kept Secret’, it is open to the public to provide the same restaurant and supermarket quality food products to consumers in the area. Our store is stocked daily, and carries a variety of products including fresh and frozen protein items, as well as grocery dry goods, beer, wine and liquor. UW Provision has two refrigerated trailers available to rent for your next big event – stocked with your purchased items and ready to go when you are. Event planning services are also available.

Though much has changed in the world since Jim Kalscheur purchased UW Meat Market in 1958, the core values and goals remain the same. UW Provision’s family of dedicated employees provide efficient, friendly and professional service and high quality food products at competitive prices to our customers.
