What is the Certified Angus Beef ® brand?

The Certified Angus Beef ® brand is a label recognizing exceptional Angus beef that is tasty, tender and juicy. Other labels may say Angus, but that’s where the similarities end. We work with family farmers and ranchers to help them raise the very best Angus beef, and monitor its progress through every stage of the journey.

Certified Angus Beef LLC is a not-for-profit entity owned by the American Angus Association®. The brand, established in 1978, is truly a stamp of exceptional quality.

How does beef earn the Certified Angus Beef ® brand label?

It’s one thing to say the Certified Angus Beef ® brand is tastier than anything else you put on your plate. It’s another to back it up with fact. The Certified Angus Beef ® brand ensures incredibly flavorful, tender and juicy beef due to high amounts of marbling in every cut. Only the best of the Choice and Prime grades is considered for our premium label. Then beef must pass the brand’s 10 science-based specifications for quality. Only truly exceptional Angus beef earns the distinctive Certified Angus Beef ® brand label.

How do you ensure the brand’s quality and integrity?

We love to be in the trenches. We visit ranches and work with folks who bring beef to dinner tables around the world. Our chefs work with restaurants to bring you the best steaks, and our meat experts work with grocery stores to ensure you receive fresh and flavorful Certified Angus Beef ® brand cuts wherever you see our logo.
