Making High-Quality Products

When most people think of Publix, they think of our stores. But Publix also manufactures excellent products that our customers love. No wonder our associates are proud to see these products on our shelves.

Our Team Structure

Associates at our dairy plants process fresh milk and produce Publix brand bottled water, iced teas, fruit drinks, juices, cultured products such as yogurt and cottage cheese, and carbonated beverages. They also produce Publix brand ice cream, which is consistently one of our most popular products!

Our Bakery plants produce a variety of delicious baked goods, including dry mix, frozen sweet goods, frozen rolls, frozen wire-cut cookies, icings, and fruit fillings; ready-to-serve products such as muffins, cupcakes, and cornbread; and frozen pies and rolls that are ready to be baked in our stores.

Our Deli kitchen produces a variety of fully prepared meats and salads according to Publix’s demanding quality standards. These foods are designed to save time for customers when preparing meals.

Printing Services prints forms, labels, signs, and newsletters, produces electronic files for Publix’s weekly newspaper ads, engraves name badges for retail associates, and handles corporate photography needs.

Produce Snacks produces a variety of tasty treats including trail mixes, dried fruits and vegetables, and our ever-popular chocolate-covered peanut butter pretzels. This team is vital to our Manufacturing family.

Our Lakeland-based Fresh Kitchen produces Grab & Go items such as sandwiches and salads, as well as sub kits, for our retail stores.

Our Corporate Manufacturing team supports the industrial engineering, accounting, production planning, and human resources functions in Manufacturing.
