Sub-Primal cuts are available from major whole muscles of the carcass, including the Chuck, Rib, Loin and Round, as well as Thin Meats (Brisket, Flap, Skirt, Tri Tip). Fresh beef cuts are vacuum packaged and boxed in 30 or 60 pound cases. Whole muscle cuts are trimmed to an external fat thickness of 1/4", unless otherwise specified by the customer.
Cut steaks of all sizes are packaged and sold fresh or frozen. Steak cuts are packaged in high barrier clear thermal roll stock film that increases the quality and shelf life of the product and enhances the visual appearance for the consumer. All portion cut products are cut using a Norfo computerized laser. This allows for a tolerance of plus or minus 1/2 oz. ensuring consistency in depth and shape resulting in a more consistent presentation.
