Cargill Food Distribution and Teys Australia have entered into an agreement to bring Australian beef to American dinner tables throughout the nation.
A variety of Teys beef products from its portfolio of both grass-finished and grain-finished cattle, including Angus beef, will be offered through Cargill Food Distribution to customers from the latter’s nine US distribution centers.
“Teys is a known and trusted Australian beef processor that has built its reputation for offering quality products over the past 67 years, and Americans will now be able to enjoy those items without having to travel ‘Down Under,’” said John Niemann, president of Wichita KS-based Cargill Food Distribution.
As a vertically integrated business, Teys manages every aspect of beef production, from cattle ranching and feedlot operations, to meat processing and distribution. Australia’s grain fed beef exports increased 8% in the second calendar quarter according to Meat & Livestock Australia.
Teys has six accredited export beef processing plants, two feedlots, and exports Australian beef products to the United States via its Teys USA importing arm. Cargill Food Distribution, a unit of Wichita-based Cargill Meat Solutions Corporation, which part of Minnesota-based Cargill Inc, provides fresh meat products to retailers, processors, distributors and other institutions throughout the U.S.
