15 Nov

AgFacts #15

About 2.2 million pounds of Certified Angus Beef®  are sold daily, generating an estimated $4 billion in consumer sales annually. In 2012, 811 million pounds of Certified Angus Beef® brand products were sold at distinguished establishments around the world. Nearly 14,000 licensed retail and foodservice partners in the United States and 45 other countries offer the premium brand.

  • The Certified Angus Beef ® brand is a cut above USDA Prime, Choice and Select. Ten quality standards ensure every bit is flavorful, tender and juicy.
  • Only 1 in 4 Angus cattle meets the highest standards to become the Certified Angus Beef ® brand, making it Angus beef at its best®.
  •  Every pound of beef is tracked from initial identification until it is sold to consumers, ensuring genuine Certified Angus Beef ® brand products
  • The same independent USDA graders inspect black-hided cattle (typical of the Angus breed) and give it a grade. All beef considered for the brand must be the best Choice, or Prime, beef – truly the top of the scale. This top-quality Angus beef is then evaluated again, using the brand’s set of 10 science-based specifications for marbling, size and uniformity. If it’s good enough to make the cut, then it earns the distinctive Certified Angus Beef ® brand label.
