Up to the challenge
of innovation.

Our heritage of leadership

To continue our leadership in food-quality and food-safety innovations, we are constantly investing in research, technology and plant improvements. So, you can trust every Excel® branded product for the superior tenderness and juiciness, rich flavor and ‭exceptional shelf life your customers expect.

Better products

From the very beginning, the Excel® brand raised the bar for beef in terms of appearance, flavor and food-safety interventions. We continually improve our processes by focusing on:

Consistency: We incorporate optical readers and computer vision-grading systems for consistent carcass sorting.

Dependability: Real-time inventory detail, box delivery systems, GPS units and wireless technology ensure accurate and timely information.

High Standards: Our food safety and quality-control processes consistently meet or exceed standard industry protocols.

Commitment to Clean: We work hard to lower risks with a wide range of interventions, including hide-on carcass wash, thermal pasteurization and inspection technology.

On-Time Delivery: Our deliveries meet customer deadlines, so you can count on having product when you need it.

Better support

The Excel® brand’s Genuinely Better® philosophy applies to everything we do, from the relationships we build with our customers to the support for meeting your needs.

  • Because our sales and field representatives are organized regionally, each group can quickly respond to questions and requests.
  • Our consumer affairs, customer service and claims departments are always standing by.
  • We help create product demand through value-added products and programs designed to increase awareness and sales.
  • Creative packaging options help customers optimize shelf space availability in the meat case for added flexibility.
