Protein Alliance was created in 1999 when Jeff Stauffenecker and Carl Wittenburg took their extensive experience in the agricultural industry and pursued their dreams of becoming entrepreneurs. Both enjoy building relationships with their customers and suppliers. In the past, both have served as board members, Jeff on the Minnesota Turkey Growers Association and Carl on the National Turkey Federation. In July 2022, Protein Alliance partnered with The Trade Café Group to provide enhanced digital transaction tools to our customers. Trade Café is a provider of software-enabled trade fulfillment and financing solutions to the protein industry. In January 2023, Protein Alliance relocated its office to 4277 Dakota Street, Suite C, Alexandria, MN 56308.
