Berks Packing Co., Inc., founded by the late Mr. Charles A. Boylan, is a local third generation, family-owned and operated meat processor located in Reading, Pennsylvania. His son, Charles P. Boylan, is currently CEO, and his grandson, David Boylan, is president of Berks Packing Co., Inc. which employs approximately 140 dedicated people.

Berks Packing Co., Inc. history can be traced back to 1928 when Mr. Charles A. Boylan was employed as a bookkeeper for the old Berkshire Abattoir. The Berkshire Abattoir was a general slaughterhouse for farmers and others in the surrounding area that needed a facility such as this. In 1931, the Berkshire Abattoir went into receivership. Mr. Charles A. Boylan continued his employment with the company and acted on behalf of the bank to protect its interests. Finally, in 1933 the Berkshire Abattoir went bankrupt. At this point, Mr. Charles A. Boylan and a partner, with borrowed capital of $30,000, bought out the assets of the Berkshire Abattoir and renamed the new corporation Berks Packing Co., Inc. This was the beginning of the Berks Packing Co., Inc. that exists today.
