A family-owned business for over 50 years, Premier Meat Company has worked with relentless passion and integrity to raise the bar and provide our customers with the freshest, most sustainable, humanely farm-bred and raised, top-of-the-line, hand cut products
How did it all get started?
30 years ago, I had an idea to own my own meat business—not just any meat, but premium meats. Because premium protein is the kind I wanted my own family to eat. It’s healthier, tastier, and means the animals, the environment and the farmers themselves are better off. That’s when I came across a tiny meat company called Wayne Provisions. With just enough for a down payment, I bought them. I made a lot of changes to Wayne, the biggest being the move to premium meats. The business grew steadily as top chefs and restaurants heard about our reputation for offering the best of the best prime beef, pork, poultry, veal, lamb, wild game and seafood—all delivered fresh, never frozen.
We changed the name to Premier Meat about 13 years ago to reflect the fact that no one offers better quality meats than we do. That sounds like an overstatement but one bite and you know it’s true. The taste and texture, the freshness and feel, the superior quality and the way it performs on the grill or in the skillet let you know these animals lived well. That’s what our customers say and we’re proud they say it.
The Butchers pride itself on providing raw, grass-fed, and free-range proteins that have been sourced from sustainable family farms to Southern California businesses for the last 50 years.
It’s because we source from family-owned farms with the highest standards in the care they take of their animals and their land. The integrity and expertise found in these American family farms can’t be matched by any commercial farm that stocks supermarket shelves. And it isn’t matched by other meat companies that call themselves quality but pick the lowest level of “premium” from lesser animals raised less well. With celebrity chefs and restaurants returning to us again and again, we knew we were doing right. And we wanted to do the same for families like yours. So, after three years of research, we engineered an eco-friendly way to ship our fresh meats to your doorstep within 48 hours. That’s how we’re bringing the best from American farmers to American families like yours and making the most flavorful, healthiest, sustainable meats the standard in your household.
Our philosophy is simple.
The healthiest animals make the healthiest, cleanest meats. The healthiest meats make the happiest customers. Happy customers like professional chefs, restaurants and you. We invite you to experience farm-to-plate, 5-star delicious dining at home in Premier style.
From Farm to Fork
At Premier Meat Company, we’re proud to offer products that are humanely raised on natural, sustainable farms. This “Smart-Farm” environment is an integral part of our dedication to deliver the highest quality protein products.
We believe in a “live healthy, eat healthy” lifestyle that goes far beyond the concepts of ‘green’ and ‘natural’. It’s about the transfer of positive energy from enriching the lives of our livestock to enriching the lives of you, our customers, upon consumption.
Our major suppliers are trusted farmers and ranchers who we’re honored to call our friends. Our partners are carefully selected for their premium products, environmentally sustainable practices, humane treatment of animals and quality control.
We pride ourselves on offering the largest supply of free-range products and one of the largest inventories of free-range chickens in the industry. With regard to our processes, all chicken and fish processing, grinding and dry aging are done in house.
We also support the California grass-fed program and buy from farmers who support this initiative. Grass-fed beef comes from free-range cattle that gather natural flavors and a wealth of nutrients from consuming rich, California grass.
Through omitting corn and genetically modified feed from cattle’s diet, grass-fed beef offers lower calories and delivers proteins that can be easily absorbed by the human body, used for both repairing and building muscle and fueling your body’s ability to burn fat. In addition, grass-fed beef is heart friendly, lowering the risk of heart disease and also serves as a dietary defense against cancer.
At the heart of Premier Meat Company lies the foundation of our motto: You are what you eat.
You Are What You Eat: Quality You Can Taste.
We are dedicated to production integrity on every level, and committed to delivering the highest quality proteins from the farm to the fork. Our facility has been inspected and certified by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). It receives random checks to ensure that cleanliness and safety remain our chief priorities.
Through strict regulations enforced by the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Program (FSIS) known as HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points), we test every facet of our products and processes to ensure safety and cleanliness. The dedicated team of protein experts in our quality control department makes this possible.
Our meat is selected for testing at random by our quality control manager to ensure that only the highest quality products are delivered. Because of the processes and procedures that we’ve implemented, our products are thoroughly inspected prior to packaging. Once certified, each product is sealed with an official “inspected” sticker.
In an effort to grow this department to its maximum caliber, we’ve made it a top priority and recruit the highest level of quality inspectors. Only through quality control can we ensure the maximum consistency and premium quality that we have built our reputation upon.
We call these promises the Premier Meat Company (PMC) Guarantee.
