Kentucky Cattlemen’s Ground Beef (KCGB) recently celebrated its fourth year of business and this week, added 16 new locations in Northern Kentucky Kroger stores. This move added availability of local beef to consumers just in time for the grilling season. This fresh and natural (no artificial ingredients, minimally processed) 80/20 ground beef is provided by Kentucky farm families who share a commitment to animal care and the environment.
Kentucky Cattlemen’s Ground Beef is currently available in 166 Kroger, 8 JayC food stores, and several foodservice outlets. Many entities across the state have worked hard to bring a local beef option directly to consumers through a large, readily available retail chain. The ground beef is sourced, processed and packaged in Kentucky and readily available at Kroger stores in 4 states including Kentucky, Tennessee, Indiana and Illinois. To date, KCGB has impacted 257 farm families in 70 counties with total farm gate sales over $3.2 million.
“We recently celebrated National Agriculture Week in Kentucky, it only seems fitting we celebrate the expansion of Kentucky beef products in Kroger stores in Northern Kentucky,” Kentucky Commissioner of Agriculture Dr. Ryan Quarles said. “Being the largest beef cattle producer east of the Mississippi, Kentucky has a reputation to maintain. The fine men and women of the Kentucky Cattlemen’s Association are the best example of people doing something to their finest abilities. We are excited the Kentucky Proud name is going on these packages so consumers can truly learn the quality of Kentucky beef.”
