Fully Cooked Meat Makes "Cents"

July 19, 2019

The need to adapt to the demand for maximum efficiency and cutting-edge innovation in the foodservice industry has never been higher. Hence why our team has developed a fully cooked line of meat products that have a clean label, do not sacrifice quality, and are flexible enough so you can customize it to your menu and apply your endless creativity.

Fully cooked meat products from Intercity Packers

Our line of fully cooked meat includes:

  • Certified Angus Beef ® Smoked Brisket
  • Certified Angus Beef ® Pot Roast With Demi Glace
  • Certified Angus Beef ® Medium Rare Inside Round
  • Certified Angus Beef ® Meatball 0.5 oz
  • Certified Angus Beef ® Beef Burger 4 oz
  • Sous Vide Skinless Pork Belly
  • All Beef Burger 4 oz

We recommend trying our fully cooked brand side-by-side with freshly cooked meat. Cooking your own beef may cost more money than you realize. When crunching the numbers, there are variables you may not be taking into account, including:

  • Inconsistent yields from piece to piece, depending on trim, sizing and cooking method.
  • Variation in purge loss due to product age.
  • Inconsistency of in-house trimming.

Fully cooked meat products from Intercity PackersFully cooked products, on the other hand, allow you to maximize every ounce of meat purchased due to minimal cook loss and no trimming. You’ll also know the true product cost. Cooking your own beef requires:

  • Skilled labor focused on preparing and cooking with consistency.
  • Added food safety measures.
  • Dedicated oven space not available for other uses.
  • Time.

Fully cooked products allow you to apply your creativity elsewhere and reduce overall labor needs. Fully cooked is a smart business decision because:

  • Less inventory required due to smaller boxes.
  • Longer shelf life on cooked products decreases spoilage and shrink.
  • Less price fluctuation compared to fresh.

Fully cooked meat products from Intercity PackersOur fully cooked products contain no binders, fillers, MSG or extra water. The brand’s value-added products are the best quality in each category, too. Fully cooked products deliver outstanding quality and flavour that is made from scratch with our premium process standards.When comparing fully cooked brands, always evaluate:

  • Label – watch for excess water or ingredients added to “fill in” for beef or “bind” water.
  • Visual – compare texture, color and overall appearance.
  • Taste – sampling will reveal the products that deliver rich, natural beef flavor.

Why cook your own beef and pork when mere pennies will deliver consistency, repeat business and labor savings?

Buying fully cooked products delivers consistency and is more cost effective than cooking your own. Fully cooked products from a Certified Angus Beef ® licensed processor such as Intercity Packers Meat & Seafood provide added assurances of customer satisfaction and more power to control profitability.
