Not Just Angus, the Best Angus

Angus is a breed, not a brand, and it’s everywhere. Others stop at “Angus.” We’re just getting started. Only the best Angus beef earns the Certified Angus Beef ® brand. Quality? Absolutely. Integrity? Always. History? The Certified Angus Beef ® brand was the first, and it’s the only Angus brand owned by the American Angus Association® and its rancher members.

Angus Beef That's a Cut Above

To earn the logo, beef must grade Choice or Prime, then pass 10 exacting standards for mouthwatering flavor, tenderness and juiciness. When you see the logo you know you’re getting the best Angus beef, ever.

Often Imitated Never Duplicated

Quality starts with the “Angus” breed, renowned for its marbling. Those little white flecks of good fat in the lean beef melt during cooking. It’s like basting the beef from within. Good, right? We take it further. Angus alone doesn’t define quality. The Certified Angus Beef ® brand does. Only 3 in 10 Angus cattle meet the brand’s high standards.

Beef: a wholesome, nutritious option

Serving for serving, there aren’t many foods that can match the ZIP beef has to offer:

  • Zinc – needed for many of the body’s essential functions
