Meet Braveheart Black Angus Beef

Redefining Premium Beef

BraveheartBraveheart Black Angus Beef,® available exclusively through our Performance Foodservice division, stands out from the rest because it was designed to exceed restaurant operators' expectations for quality beef. Once we set our sights on a premium beef line, our team of brands experts spent time talking with chefs and restaurant owners, asking them about their “beef” with the other beef brands on the market and about what they were looking for. Four areas of importance rose to the top: taste, quality, trim and consistency. Braveheart Beef was designed to deliver the best in all four categories.


Braveheart Beef starts with cattle born on family farms in the U.S. and raised in the Midwest with an emphasis on humane practices and sustainability. The cattle are processed in state-of-the-art facilities that focus on quality and consistency.

Quality & Consistency

In order to ensure the quality of Braveheart Black Angus Beef, our team developed PathProven. Through this unique process, we use DNA Traceback to confirm that our product is a majority Black Angus—the highest percentage in the industry, and we establish a link between each animal and each cut of meat. The PathProven system also includes standards for feeding, health, and humane treatment, which are just as important as an animal’s genetics in determining quality. Through PathProven, our customers can be absolutely confident that their Braveheart Beef will meet the same premium standard every time.

Trim & Taste

Sure, we can talk all we want about quality standards, but the true test of a cut of beef is how it tastes. And we can guarantee the flavor of Braveheart Beef is unparalleled. In addition, it’s processed with a ¼-inch-maximum trim with no extra tolerances so our operators get the premium quality they require.


Braveheart Beef offers a wide portfolio to meet customer demand at any level, spanning high-end steakhouses, burger joints, and innovative top-tier restaurants. Our variety of primals and cuts ranges from well-known, sought-after steaks to obscure, new cuts that are perfect for experimental chefs. Whole loins are also available for chefs who butcher in house. And, Braveheart burgers are unparalleled in terms of cook-size retention, ease of preparation, juicy flavor and performance. Whatever type of beef you serve, you’ll find a superior Braveheart selection in our full line of products.
