The Certified Angus Beef ® brand is a label recognizing exceptional Angus beef that is tasty, tender and juicy. Other labels may say Angus, but that’s where the similarities end. The brand, established in 1978, is truly a stamp of exceptional quality, and your sign of a great meal. We work with family farmers and ranchers to help them raise the very best Angus beef, and monitor its progress through every stage of the journey. In fact, their bosses are in boots: Certified Angus Beef LLC is a nonprofit entity owned by the American Angus Association ® and its farmer members.
