Strong Sourcing Partners Provide Generations of Excellence.
Since 1956 Northwest Meat Company has been passionate about providing excellent cuts of high-quality meat. For three generations, our family traditions of values and standards have never wavered. We never compromise quality and this starts with our relationships with our sourcing partners.
We look for meat farms and strong partners who share our same vision and ideals about using sustainable agricultural practices, humanely raising animals, and following safety standards. We expect excellence in all aspects of the process. By collaborating with our sourcing partners, we are able to anticipate and bring forth innovative products and ideas to our market. Family and community drive success and enable Northwest Meats to have consistent product sourcing with exceptional quality. We stand behind every cut of beef, veal, lamb, and pork we sell.
— BEEF —
Originating from the Piedmont region in the Northwest of Italy, this unique breed of cattle has a special genetic makeup that ensures their meat is a cut above the rest. Piedmontese cattle naturally develop a greater percentage of muscle mass, less fat, fewer calories, and higher protein compared with other breeds. This leads to more tender, leaner, and tastier beef products. Certified Piedmontese beef provides consumers with a significantly healthier range of products that never compromise when it comes to flavor. Partnering with Piedmontese as their official distributor in the Chicago area, we are delighted to offer lean, healthy, delicious beef options that are guaranteed to wow your guests.
