Valley realizes half of its revenues from manufacturing and distributing meals for senior nutrition programs. Traditions, the frozen meal division, doubled its capacity several years ago and is now generating growing revenues by expanding its business to include corrections, healthcare and senior dining facilities that see frozen preprepared meals as an increasingly viable option in the face of increasing food, labor, supply and fuel costs.
Valley's Senior Services and Corrections Services divisions also continue to see growth opportunities in niches where economic budget constraints have impacted self-operated programs. The company is also researching ways to better meet those customers' increasing needs for health and wellness focused menus.
A comprehensive back-office system has allowed Valley to keep costs manageable despite rising raw food prices. Technology has also helped control production to reduce food waste.
On the menu front at the units, Valley's Choice Matters program offers attractive combo meal choices that have under 550 calories and 550 mg of sodium and less than 15 g of fat.
