NORTHGLENN, Colo. – Niman Ranch, a subsidiary of Perdue Farms, announced its first Canadian partnership with Macgregors Meat & Seafood Ltd on June 7.
Macgregors will additionally sell the Certified Angus Beef brand Natural by Niman Ranch for the first time in Canada. The purveyor will be managing all aspects of the Niman Ranch program for Canada internally from box ready, to dry aging, to hand butchered.
“At Macgregors, we have identified our unique pillars of strength in our work culture, processing capacity, and our steadfast commitment to remaining Canadian independently owned,” said Duncan Macgregor Jr., president and owner of Macgregors. “We believe our present and future success will be built on strategic brand partnerships and Niman Ranch provides instant credibility in Canada relative to natural and humanely raised highest quality beef, pork, and lamb.”
Macgregors Meat & Seafood Ltd. is in its seventh generation of Canadian family ownership with a history of supplying foodservice customers in Canada.
Niman Ranch meat is third-party-certified under the Certified Humane program. All products are sustainably raised without the use of antibiotics or hormones. Niman Ranch meat is raised by a community of more than 720 small, independent US family farmers.
“We’re thrilled to expand our business into Canada for the first time through Macgregors, an incredibly diverse partner in Canada, unique and unparalleled at both foodservice and retail,” said Kay Cornelius, vice president of sales at Niman Ranch. “With the highest grades in the industry, the best chefs in the United States use Niman Ranch beef. Niman Ranch quality has no borders.”
