A C Legg Inc

A.C. Legg Packing Company, Inc. was founded in 1923 in Birmingham, Alabama by Mr. Andrew C. Legg and two business partners.

Mr. Legg crafted and retailed his secret recipe pork sausage for a number of years in the downtown-Birmingham meat market, and eventually believed that he could share his Southern Style sausage seasoning with all of the United States. Thus, Leggís Old Plantation Pork Sausage Seasoning was born.

In 1936, Mr. Charles W. Purvis was hired as an office employee at A.C. Legg, and over the next few years, he became the General Manager, purchased stock, and eventually acquired ownership of this company he loved and had helped establish.

This legacy of excellence and pride continues today, as A.C. Legg is still a family-owned business. Charles Purvisís sons, Jim and Charles, are currently CEO/President and Executive Vice President, respectively, and his grandchildren are actively serving within the company, as well.

Since 1936, Mr. Purvisís motto was, Education is something that, once attained, cannot be taken away, and this philosophy of educated excellence is what drives us to continually learn, adapt and grow in order to achieve the best results possible for our customers.
