Atlantic Beef Products in Albany says the premiere shipment of Prince Edward Island Certified Beef has been sent to the Northeastern United States.
It’s a market Atlantic Beef Products has been pursuing for the past number of months with the assistance of PEI Cattle Producers and the Food Island Partnership. ABP says numerous meetings with potential customers were supported by Innovation PEI’s Trade Team PEI initiatives.
Colorado Boxed Beef Co. is a US based beef distributor with 9 locations in the USA. Company officials came to PEI in June to tour the plant and local farms and were very impressed with the beef, as well as producers and the ABP Plant.
