Schweid & Sons Launches First-To-Market USDA-Approved Brazen Climate Friendly Ground Beef
Brazen Beef is the first beef brand that has received USDA approval for a climate friendly beef claim by demonstrating a 10% reduction in GHG emissions as compared to conventionally raised beef*
With over a century as purveyors of premium beef—and more recently, fresh premium pork sausage—Schweid & Sons is breaking new ground in the protein category with the introduction of new Brazen Climate Friendly Ground Beef Burgers. Schweid and Sons has been selected as the exclusive purveyor of this first-of-its-kind ground beef for distribution nationwide in partnership with The Brazen Beef Brand from Tyson Foods, Inc.
Cattle used for Brazen Beef products are enrolled in Tyson Foods’ Climate-Smart Beef program, which combines tried-and-true rancher ingenuity with the latest data and technology. Backed by extensive research and third-party experts, the goal of the program is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from pasture to production through collaboration with the beef supply chain to implement more sustainable agricultural practices. To date, cattle enrolled in the program have demonstrated a 10% greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction as compared to the standard emissions for conventionally raised beef.
