The Story of Flavor - Certified Angus Beef
Angus is everywhere these days. But the Certified Angus Beef ® brand? It’s on an entirely different level. It defines the standard by which all beef is measured. No shortcuts and with a virtual obsession with flavor and juiciness. How did those standards come into being? Glad you asked. It’s an interesting story we never get tired of telling. It’s the tale of a group of farmers who, in the 1970s, got together and said collectively, “We can do better. We can produce beef that’s extremely tender, juicier and always packed with flavor.” They then proceeded to set the standards that have become the true mark of quality of an Angus brand. The Certified Angus Beef ® brand. From our family ranches to your family table.

Bottom Line - Certified Angus Beef Prime
If you are committed to the quality of commodity USDA Prime, raise the bar with Certified Angus Beef ® brand Prime. Only the top 3% of beef is elite enough to earn the brand’s Prime label.  Certified Angus Beef ® brand Prime’s exacting standards ensure the highest level of quality for every cut:

Requiring superior beef muscling, such as from Angus-influenced cattle, eliminates poorly muscled dairy cattle and delivers consistent plate presentations without compromising yield.

Allowing only “A” maturity beef from cattle harvested younger than 30 months of age ensures desirable tenderness, superior color, finer texture and superior firmness.

Eliminating extremely heavy carcasses, exceptionally large and small ribeyes, and excessively fatty product equates to thicker, more uniform and consistent cuts. Safeguarding against capillary ruptures, dark cutters and
Brahman-influenced cattle means each cut is tender, flavorful, and ensures a consistent and high-quality appearance.
