Southern Heritage

has come from servicing 12 accounts in Mississippi in 1982 to now serving over a 1000 schools, churches, corporate offices, and other various organizations in 12 states. When attorney, Ed Tonore, and a law book sales rep, Mike Jones, decided to start a gourmet meat holiday fund raising program, they never dreamed that their ideas could grow to be one of the finest and most popular fundraisers in the industry.

After 35 years of operating in the Jackson, MS area, Southern Heritage relocated their headquarters to Fairhope, AL—a charming and unique town on the Eastern Shore of Mobile Bay. The staff takes pride in providing industry-leading service with wonderful customer service, modern technology capabilities, and several cold storage facilities for seamless deliveries of their award-winning products.

In 1992, Southern Heritage purchased Billy Gibbs Fundraising, a Mississippi fundraising company for over 40 years. In 1995 they purchased Market South, a Mississippi fundraising company since 1980. Through acquisitions and mergers, Southern Heritage has become the largest supplier of gourmet meat products in the South.

What started out as a gourmet meat fundraiser has now grown to providing a year round meat stick fundraiser, a fresh strawberry fundraiser in the spring, and even cookie dough!

To those of you that have been on this journey:

It has been a pleasure to serve you all of these years and it brings great joy to know that school kids and even adult organizations are benefitting not only from enjoying the taste of our products but also financially and socially. Watching our customers gain confidence when they sell our products and then benefitting from the money raised is why we do what we do. It is my wish that you continue to be a part of the Southern Heritage family for many years to come.
