Hawaii Ranchers Ground Beef now available
It's time for Honolulu consumers to step up to the plate and buy locally raised beef
Hawaii Ranchers Ground Beef, a 100 per cent local, grass fed, pasture raised ground beef product is being launched March 10 at three Foodland stores in Honolulu – Market City, Beretania, and Foodland Farms in Aina Haina.
Not only does locally raised beef support the many generations-old ranching families in our state, the Hawaii Ranchers grass fed product is healthier for you. Grass fed beef is leaner and lower in calories than beef raised on corn or other grains that are high in starch. No hormones or antibiotics are given to these naturally raised beef cattle that freely graze on open pasture.
Beta carotene and vitamin E are found in greater concentration in the muscle tissue of grass fed beef than grain fed beef. Grass fed beef also contains more omega 3 fatty acids, the heart friendly fat. That's probably because the cow has eaten grass and omega 3s are derived from plant matter.
The Hawaii Ranchers ground beef is also fresher: it is air shipped to Oahu and processed within a few days of slaughter compared to beef that is imported from the U.S. Mainland or New Zealand.
Step up to the plate and shop for Hawaii Ranchers ground beef at the three Foodland locations starting March 10.
