The holidays are the perfect time for decadent dishes like a classic surf and turf.

  • December 12, 2019

The holidays are the perfect time for decadent dishes and delicious buffet spreads. It’s the time to treat customers to the freshest products and offer indulgences like top-quality steak and lobster from Buckhead Pride/Newport Pride. “Our specialty meat and seafood companies expand our breadth of premium fresh products and provide center-of-the-plate customization to customers,” says Paul Nasir, President, Sysco Specialty Meat Group.

Our specialty meat companies provide freshness and flavor by relying on the largest Quality Assurance team in the industry and implementing numerous checks. They measure steaks to ensure steak specifications are met, monitor plant temperature and complete a packaging and labeling check on steaks, which are individually vacuum packed. Additionally, all meat-handling facilities have SQF (Safe Quality Food) Level 3 Certifications from the SQF Program, which checks that the process and products meet the highest safety and quality codes.
