Hunter Meat Packing Plant, Demolished at Last

I’ve watched the slow death of the Hunter Meat Packing Plant for close to four years now, and it’s finally coming down into a pile of rubble, replaced at least for the time-being with a tanker truck lot.

I never liked Hunter as much as Armour, but it still had its charms, from the paper-like slabs of concrete hanging by its rebar, to the smokestack itself.

Presumably, it is finally being torn down to make way for new industrial space or warehouses in anticipation of the new Mississippi River Bridge.

The view of the city from the stockyards is truly spectacular.

    • Gene, they had been available at Cardinal games, but I don’t know if they still are. Can anyone else help out? I think for the most part the brand has been discontinued.

  1. Have Hunters close for good they had the best meat products hotdogs ,salami

    • Hunter Hot Dogs used to be available in St. Louis up until relatively recently. I have not seen them in awhile. Can anyone tell me if they’ve seen Hunter Hot Dogs in stores recently?

  2. Hunter products aren’t available in the St. Louis area. I think Hunter was bought out by John Morrell & Co. a time ago.

    • I also think Hunter was bought out by John Morrell, as well, from some brief research I did.
