"Reduced exposure with grinds"


Our customers specify the product's production and packaging requirements as they would prepare it in their meat department and we'll do it that way. The relationship is truly a supplier-operator partnership. Our production facility was built to handle the various spec requirements requested from our operators.

Pork products are packed in a high-oxygen atmosphere that utilize three levels of gases. The packaging technique allows for tight control of bacteria without the use of any sprays. AVA does not spray any of their products. The company's pork products carry a 14-day shelf life.

The case-ready beef program utilizes low-oxygen atmosphere packaging. Because beef products do not age in the package, they can be left in the case for up to 21 days. There is also a Cryovac package aged-beef program that provides 30 days of shelf life. The beef side of the business produces patties without using any trim in the grind. The incoming tubes are independently tested by U.S. Department of Agriculture certified third-party labs as well as by the manufacturer before being accepted.
