In early 2010, Ed Burchell of Roseda Beef and Bill Ruppersberger of Geo. G. Ruppersberger & Sons, Inc. decided to form Old Line Custom Meat Company, LLC. Old Line Meats will be one of Marylands largest meat processing companies, providing service to individual customers and wholesale clients.
Old Line Meats will bring quality meat processing back to Maryland, says co-owner Burchell. Burchell started Roseda Beef in 1999. His interest in producing quality beef, led him to Bill Ruppersberger, the 5th generation owner of Ruppersberger & Sons. His familys company has been operating since 1866 and is Baltimores longest surviving meat packing company.
