Cargill Rolls Out Exclusive EZ Peel™ Packaging for Our Certified® Ground Beef 1-lb. Chub Products

Cargill is continuing their standard of innovation by answering consumer demand for better fresh meat packaging. According to a Cargill proprietary research study of more than 8,000 fresh meat consumers, 57 percent of consumers said they prefer meat packaging that requires as little contact with raw meat as possible – and are willing to pay more for it. In fact, 63 percent of consumers are willing to pay 10 percent more for easy-open packages.*


That’s why Cargill is introducing EZ Peel™ packaging in all 1lb Our Certified® ground beef chubs. This packaging format is available in a variety of lean points and source grinds, providing consumers with options.
