WOOSTER, Ohio – CJ Foods has launched its own brand of Korean barbecue products made with Certified Angus Beef.
Bulgogi, bulgogi patties and galbi are made with premium Certified Angus Beef knuckle, chuck and short rib, respectively, and prepared using CJ Foods’ Korean BBQ sauce.
“Korean flavors are topping the trend charts,” said Becky Westby, CJ Foods’ senior director of sales for foodservice and ingredients. “Operators can easily introduce authentic Korean BBQ as an appetizer or as an LTO for lunch or dinner.”
The products are made in the US and are available in two, 5-lb. packages per case. The items can be grilled, roasted or pan-fried, and ready to serve quickly. They have no MSG added or trans-fat. Products are available from DOT Foods and the Certified Angus Beef brand’s distributors.
CJ Foods, whose parent company is based in Korea, has been in operation in the U.S. since 1978 and is one of the largest distributors of Korean food products nationwide, according to the company.
