Partnerships are an operational marriage, and Grass Fed Foods has just entered a new one. The supplier has partnered with Rastelli Foods Group to help the company expand its offerings in the grass-fed food manufacturing sector. Grass Fed’s SunFed Ranch and Teton Waters Ranch brands will be used to create a wide range of products for retail, foodservice, and e-commerce channels. Rastelli's will also use SunFed as its primary domestic grass-fed regenerative beef supplier.
"The Rastelli family shares the kinds of values that not only resonate with the Grass Fed Foods company, but also with our ranchers," said Jeff Tripician, President and Chief Executive Officer of Grass Fed Foods. "The foundation of their business stands on pillars that center around authenticity, family values, and integrity. And they make amazing products that resonate across menus from college campuses to fine dining establishments, as well as every grocery store that sells natural and organic products."
Burgers, steaks, grinds, and value-added items, including ready-to-eat and sous vide products, will position Rastelli Foods Group and Grass Fed Foods to meet the evolving needs of today's consumers by offering delicious and sustainable options.
SunFed Ranch is one of the largest domestic brands of fresh case-ready grass-fed beef, and Teton Waters Ranch is a leader in grass-fed Polish dinner sausages, according to a press release.
"We are so pleased to build out our grass-fed portfolio with Grass Fed Foods," said Ray Rastelli, Jr., President of Rastelli Foods Group. "Rastelli's and Teton Waters have had an existing relationship prior to GFF, and this agreement will allow us to provide them with a visibility to the entire supply chain from import to retail ready product. We have an international arm to the business that clears customs and imports product and this new relationship between Rastelli's, and Grass Fed Foods will allow us to build efficiencies in the supply chain, by working closely together."
