Heritage Foods USA at Slow Meat 2015

Heritage Foods USA is headed to Denver this week to participate in the Slow Meat Symposium, engaging with over 200 stakeholders in the American meat supply chain. The event runs June 4th through 6th with a number of events designed to push the boundaries in how we think about raising, processing, and consuming meat.

Slow Meat is a movement that actualizes the culture of confinement issue and an event that brings together ranchers, farmers, butchers, chefs, eaters and more to share ideas on how we can turn the herd toward meat that is good, clean and fair for all. Slow Meat brings together ranchers, farmers, butchers, chefs, eaters and more to share ideas on how we can turn the herd toward meat that is good, clean and fair for all.

On Saturday, June 5th, the day following the tasting, a Slow Meat Fair opens to the public. Heritage Foods USA will be hosting Breeds and Brews during the fair – an informative tasting of four heritage breeds of hogs with beer pairings from Denver’s own Great Divide.

In preparation for the event we picked up seven styles of Great Divide and compared them with the four pork breeds we will be showcasing during the event – Duroc, Berkshire, Old Spot, and Red Wattle.

Founded in 2014, Slow Meat promotes several basic tenants including:

– Better meat, less

– Biodiversity

– Eating Nose-to-tail

– Understanding Food Labels

Heritage Foods USA also lives by these values and is proud to participate alongside Slow Meat in promoting better meat ethics and standards of operations in the meat supply chain
