Getting to the Meat of the Menu

Meet Tyson Fresh Meats’ Foodservice Experts

As an operator, you are always on the lookout for quality protein to source for your menu. One problem: in a saturated market, it’s tough to tell who is going to deliver. Dependable consistency, quality and great service are a given for a business to thrive — so which company should an operator turn to.

The Beef & Pork Experts™ at Tyson Fresh Meats are confident: they’ve got you covered.

Quality Products, Quality Partners

"There are so many different attributes that our customers are looking for, and those change from quality attributes to production attributes,” said Ozlem Worpel, senior brand manager of Tyson Fresh Meats Marketing.

“When we talk about [beef] quality attributes, it’s ‘Is it USDA Choice grade? Is it USDA Prime grade?’ If we're talking about pork, ‘What kind of pH level? What kind of color? What kind of marbling does it have?’”

“If we're talking about production attributes, ‘How are the animals raised? Are they never ever given antibiotics? Or added hormones? How are they are fed, is it a vegetarian diet?’"

The Tyson Fresh Meats Team prides themselves on a broad portfolio of quality fresh beef and pork products and the willingness to work with partners to find exactly what they’re looking for.

"We really know the meat business, from sourcing the best livestock, to producing the protein the most cost-efficient and safe way to do so," said Worpel. "Most of our employees have degrees in animal science, and they know the meat. So when they sit and talk with a consumer, they understand their needs, sometimes better than what the customer thinks they need."
