EW Grobbel Sons, Inc.

is a family food company that was established in 1883. The foundation of the organization is centered around growing and developing each employee, both personally and professionally while producing premium quality food products. Headquartered in Detroit's historic Eastern Market, EW Grobbel Specializes in traditional deli products and whole muscle proteins. The company gained a national following with its "Grobbel's" brand of products, which is best known as "America’s Oldest Corned Beef Specialist". Recent expansions include acquisitions of the Detroit processor, Sy Ginsberg's Meat & Deli (est. 1982), and Kosher produce specialist, Topor's Pickle Company (est. 1960).  These strategic subsidiaries allow EW Grobbel to focus more in the traditional deli industry, while at the same time achieving growth and spurring innovation. EW Grobbel premium products are distributed throughout Michigan and hundreds of distribution centers across the United States.
