Price Chopper Supermarkets has formed a trade partnership with family-owned and -operated specialty meat company Strauss Brands, which is now exclusively supplying the 132-store grocery chain with Chiappetti Meat Co. branded lamb, group-raised veal and grass-fed beef.
“We’re confident that the superior quality of their chops, grinds and roasts, as well as their best-in-class animal welfare practices, will be well received by our customers and further establish Price Chopper as a signature destination for lamb, veal and grass-fed beef,” said Jason Resner, VP of meat merchandising of the Schenectady, N.Y.-based grocer, which operates in six Northeastern states.
Strauss Free Raised grass-fed beef is sourced only from independent American family farmers who raise and finish their heritage-bred, free-roaming cattle on a 100 percent grass and forage diet. The cattle never receive grains, are never confined to a feedlot and are never given hormones or antibiotics.
“The mission of our family and the Price Chopper family is very similar: to provide the best-tasting and healthiest products available,” noted Randy Strauss, CEO and third-generation co-owner of Franklin, Wis.-based Strauss Brands, adding that both companies are “committed to providing its customers with excellent products which are raised ethically and humanely.”
