Coop Tender Beef -
Beefing Up Atlantic Canada at Home
Co-op Atlantic has joined forces with Maritime beef producers to promote beef raised in this region.
This has been done successfully in many markets in North America. We have a beef industry in Atlantic
Canada that should be promoted, indeed, needs to be promoted! A line of branded fresh beef is being raised
specifically to meet consumer preferences of smaller cuts, flavour and tenderness. The Co-op Tender Beef,
is an exclusive product of the Co-op retail grocery stores.
We know that Maritime producers have the genetics and the know-how to meet this challenge. We believe that by working together, with producers, feed companies, retailers, and processors, we can deliver an outstanding tasty, high quality and consistent product. Feeding requirements and strict handling requirements will be part of this program.
How it works:
The branded beef program will guarantee the following to consumers:
- Cattle will be raised on the scenic rolling hills and the fresh air of Atlantic
- Cattle will be of grade AA or AAA.
- Cattle will be fed a high grain diet.
- Cattle will be dressed at smaller carcass weights.
- Cattle will be handled following strict safety guidelines of HACCP (Hazard
Analysis Critical Control Point).
