Braveheart Black Angus Beef
Braveheart Black Angus Beef® redefines premium beef, setting a higher bar for quality, tenderness and taste. Our beef starts with cattle born on family farms in the U.S. and raised in the Midwest with an emphasis humane practices and sustainability. They are processed in state-of-the-art facilities that focus on quality and consistency. Based on our heralded PathProven® process, Braveheart is available exclusively through Performance Foodservice in a full line of beef, spanning carefully cut steaks to mouthwatering burgers. No matter your operation’s needs, you can depend on Braveheart Black Angus Beef to be a cut above extraordinary every time.
From the mouthwatering flavor of a medium-rare steak to the chargrilled, meaty taste of a perfectly seared burger, whichever Braveheart Black Angus Beef® cut you choose, the flavor is unparalleled. This is a result of our careful sourcing and processing, which is designed from start to finish to produce the best taste. Our beef is fed a 100% U.S. grain-based diet, and then it’s finished on Midwestern corn, which contributes to the beautiful marbling that produces superior flavor and tenderness.
We ensure Braveheart Beef® consistency through our pioneering PathProven® program, which enforces exacting specifications to ensure premium quality. Our beef comes from lighter carcasses weighing an average of 850 pounds or less, which create ideal steak sizes, allowing operators to easily establish precise cooking times and consistent plate presentation. In addition, our packing facilities focus on slower line speeds, encouraging an emphasis on craftsmanship and ensuring uniform quality. This is what keeps your customers coming back for their favorite steaks or burgers every time.
Quality starts with sourcing. Braveheart Beef® comes from Angus-verified majority black hided cattle, which are known for producing beef with the best flavor and tenderness. In addition, our cattle are born on U.S. family farms and raised and fed in Progressive Beef, third-party audited Midwest feed yards, ensuring we always know where our cattle come from and that they are treated humanely. Braveheart cattle are transported 200 miles or less for processing, which puts less stress on the animals, adding to a more flavorful and tender meat profile. From start to finish, we stop at nothing to produce the best quality beef in a humane and responsible manner.
Many leading “premium” packers allow up to a 1-inch trim, which includes a buffer of fat, leaving end users with excess trim, poor yields and an unattractive cost-use variable. Braveheart Black Angus Beef® specifies a ¼-inch maximum trim, and that’s our standard—no built-in buffers. Our beef is processed in state-of-the-art facilities by skilled craftsmen who focus on precision. There are no extra tolerances, so you get the true yield you are looking for and the premium quality you require.
