Certified Angus Beef Brand
Schweid & Sons Promise of Quality
As your retail go-to for freshly ground, custom-blended burgers, we take great pride in making those burgers with the very best Angus beef available. This is why we make many of our blends with Certified Angus Beef ® brand cuts.
What is the Certified Angus Beef ® brand?
Certified Angus Beef ® is the original brand of Angus beef, known for always being tasty, tender and juicy. The brand, which family farmers and ranchers established in 1978, is truly a stamp of exceptional quality and your sign of a great meal. It’s owned and backed by the many farming and ranching members of the American Angus Association®, and those members are dedicated to raising cattle with care, so your family can enjoy time around the dinner table.
How does beef earn the Certified Angus Beef ® brand name?
Only the best of Choice and Prime grades are considered for the brand name. To earn it, a third-party U.S. Department of Agriculture grader grades each cut and decides if it meets the brand’s 10 exacting standards for exceptional flavor, juiciness and tenderness. The brand’s first requirement is marbling—those small, white flecks of flavor within the lean that melt when cooked and give beef its mouthwatering flavor.
