Sept. 30, 2011

Certified Angus Beef Award

Identifying new international customers for Certified Angus Beef products helped
JBS Swift & Company win a marketing honor.

JBS Swift & Company was recognized as the International Packer Marketer of the Year by Certified Angus Beef LLC. JBS Swift identifies new international customers for Certified Angus Beef ® products and provides education for its sales team, customers and waitstaff.

These efforts helped earn the marketing honor as well as a Top Three Sales Volume International Packer award. The company’s Grand Island, Neb., location was also recognized as a Top Five Sales Volume Fabricator and for certifying two million cattle since it became a licensed fabricator in 1996.

JBS Swift was one of just 35 companies that received top marketing, sales and integrity awards at the brand’s annual conference on Sept. 20-22 in Sunriver, Ore. Their focus on quality helps bring premium beef to the table.

Known for its exceptional quality and generous marbling, the Certified Angus Beef ® brand’s 10 quality standards make it a cut above USDA Prime, Choice and Select. Only the best Angus beef achieves the brand’s premium name.
