The B.C. Association of Abattoirs is currently working on a project entitled “Beef Net”. This program will be an online ordering tool for chefs, grocers, and retailers; allowing them to log onto the “Beef Net” website and choose local beef producers and abattoirs. Each beef producers will have a “story” outlining themselves and their animals, it will have details of the aspects that set them apart from other producers such as: Organic certification, Hormone Free, Antibiotic Free, etc. Each producer will be a certified B.C. Beef producer which will allow anyone who purchases their beef to promote the product as such (Please see the Certified BC Beef Logo above). Once a producer and abattoir team has been chosen, chefs, grocers, and retailers will have the ability to select specific cutting instructions for their purchase. Whether this is cutting instructions for a restaurant setting or a grocery store, the online ordering tool will send out a price quote prior to the shipment being sent. For chefs their price list will be specific outlining a cost per serving for each cut. For grocers and retailers a cost per primal will be outlined. For more details about how this program will work, please click on the links below.
