RICHMOND, Va. — Performance Foodservice announced the launch of its FarmSmart® brand of cleaner label fresh and fully cooked chicken and ground beef protein products.
“Today’s consumers are looking for cleaner label products from animals treated humanely and without artificial ingredients or additives,” said Steve Sands, Vice President of Protein. “Our FarmSmart brand offers the highest-quality protein products in the marketplace with unparalleled performance and consistency.”
FarmSmart brand chickens are humanely raised cage-free in the U.S. and never given antibiotics or hormones. They are also part of Performance Foodservice’s PathProven® traceability program. From farm to plate, chickens and feed are traced throughout the process to guarantee product quality. Meanwhile, FarmSmart brand beef is sourced from cattle entirely grass fed on U.S. farms.
Additional FarmSmart products including turkey, pork and assorted cuts of beef are in development and should be available soon.
