USDA Certified Angus Beef


What is the Certified Angus Beef ® brand?

The Certified Angus Beef ® brand is a label recognizing exceptional Angus beef that is tasty, tender and juicy.

Certified Angus Beef LLC is a not-for-profit entity owned by the American Angus Association ®.
The brand,established in 1978, is truly a stamp of exceptional quality.

quality and consistency. You’ve heard of Prime, Choice and Select grades – and Prime tops the grading scale.
