    Fresh Meat Trends:<br />Cargill Goes Vegetarian for Good Nature Pork Line

    In a bid to further beef up the all-natural standards for its Good Nature antibiotic- and hormone-free pork program, Cargill has converted to a 100 percent vegetarian diet for hogs that supply the line.

    In a bid to further beef up the all-natural standards for its Good Nature antibiotic- and hormone-free pork program, Cargill has converted to a 100 percent vegetarian diet for hogs that supply the line.

    “Good Nature pork is targeted at a growing consumer audience that is very conscious of how and where their food is raised,” relays Joe Linot, marketing manager for the Wichita, Kan.-based Cargill Pork. “By using a 100 percent vegetarian diet for hogs in our program, Cargill can provide options for consumers who want to make healthy, environmentally responsible choices when they select Good Nature pork for their families.”

    A vegetarian diet means hogs receive a mixture of natural grain — a diet completely free of any animal byproducts. The responsible feeding practices create a pork product rich in taste without the use of artificial means.

    “If you start with natural, healthy ingredients, you’re going to have a natural, healthy pork product and a great eating experience,” says Linot. “By saying ‘no’ to antibiotics, growth stimulants and animal byproducts in our feed, we’re helping consumers say ‘yes’ to great-tasting meals.”
