CERTIFIED HEREFORD BEEF
Certified Hereford Beef (CHB), based in
Kansas City, Mo., is a breed specific, branded
beef program owned by rancher members of
the American Hereford Association. The CHB
brand has strict quality standards that provide
consistency in product specification and gives
consumers a superior eating experience, says
Amari Manning, COO.
“The goal of Certified Hereford Beef is to
create an awareness of the program and breed.
It is important retailers are aware there is a
superior breed-specific program with strict
specifications for quality and consistency in
the industry that allows them to add value
to their bottom line, differentiate and com-
pete with numerous hide color programs,”
Manning says. “CHB offers retailers a program
that provides customized services to help them
sell more beef at a profitable level.”
At AMC, attendees can learn about CHB’s
case-ready items that correlate to emerging
consumer-shopping trends for convenience
and food safety, Manning says. The company
will also feature pre-cooked, heat-and-eat
items that are new to the market.
CREEKSTONE FARMS PREMIUM
Creekstone Farms Premium Beef processes
only Black Angus Cattle. The company has
two comprehensive USDA beef programs: con-
ventional and a “never ever” antibiotic-free, all
natural line of products.
“In response to the updated USDA bench
trim guidelines that were implemented in 2016,
we introduced a line of case-ready trimmed
beef,” says Jim Rogers, vice president of sales
and marketing for the Arkansas City, Kan.-
based company. “These ready to cut products
have 95 to 100 percent yield, so they virtually
eliminate bench trim and reduce shrink and
labor. Add to that the quality of Creekstone
Farms Premium Beef, and it is a winning pro-
gram for retailers.”
Creekstone Farms has also introduced a
line of All Natural Pork. The pork program is
based on all natural antibiotic-free pork that is
raised crate-free with no artificial ingredients
added. “This means a cleaner flavor and better
all-around taste,” Rogers adds.
