The man behind the name
While hunting with his family, Jack had the idea to make jerky with his great-grandfather's Old World recipes. Working with his sons they created a jerky that was so good friends and neighbors were always asking for more. At this point they created their first product, Jack Link's Beef Steaks, and began selling it throughout the region.
THE FAMILY TRADITION CONTINUES
We are proud to be a family-owned company. Jack Link and his son, President and CEO, Troy Link discuss the past, present and future of Jack Link’s Protein Snacks - from their old family recipes that started it all, to how we became the largest meat snack business in the world.
AS THE COMPANY CONTINUED TO GROW, JACK LINK'S SON, TROY, FOLLOWED IN HIS FATHER'S FOOTSTEPS TO JOIN THE FAMILY BUSINESS. TOGETHER THEY WORK SIDE BY SIDE KEEPING THE FAMILY TRADITION ALIVE.
