ibp Trusted Excellence Brand
The ibp Trusted Excellence brand is likely our most recognizable brand name. From its founding in 1960 as Iowa Beef Packers, Inc. to its important place in our portfolio, this brand is known for revolutionizing the boxed beef industry with packing and trimming innovations that have saved energy and reduced transportation costs for restaurant meat suppliers by eliminating the need to store and ship fat, bones and trimmings.
- Consistent quality and cutting for fewer returned plates
- Specialized techniques and unique packaging that keep product fresh, preserve color and maximize shelf life
- Beef and pork that’s ready for automated slicing or manual cutting, which can reduce labor and leaves a minimum of trimmings
