WICHITA, Kan.Cargill Food Distribution and Teys Australia are teaming up to bring Australian beef to U.S. dinner tables. A variety of Teys beef products from its portfolio of both grass-finished and grain-finished cattle, including Angus beef, will be offered through Cargill Food Distribution to customers from the latter's nine U.S. distribution centers.
We have a long-standing business relationship with the Teys family, and believe Americans will embrace their company's beef products when they have an opportunity to try them," said John Niemann, president of Wichita-based Cargill Food Distribution.
As a vertically integrated business, Teys manages every aspect of beef production, from cattle ranching and feedlot operations to meat processing and distribution, which creates a cost-effective supply chain. Teys has six accredited export beef processing plants and two feedlots, and is a leading exporter of Australian beef products to the United States via its Teys USA importing arm.
The partnership is part of Cargill's continued expansion into Australian commerce. In August it purchased Joe White Maltings, Australia's largest malt producer.
