TENDER - CUTS SPECIFICATION

 

EXCELLENCE FROM THE HEART OF POLAND

The experience and dedication in providing only the highest quality beef has seen the TENDER brand name recognized as the Polish HoReCa market leader in premium beef.

Tenderness of your beef is our highest priority. It is achieved through the whole production process: breeding, feeding, chilling, and aging to maximize eating quality.

 

Quite simply, it’s our attention to detail. We are driven by the desire to produce superior beef without compromise.

 

IN HARMONY WITH NATURE

Our farmers are professionals and passionate. They know what is best for their animals and make every effort to ensure the highest standards of cattle wellbeing.

 

Genetics

We believe this pursuit of perfection starts with superior genetics. TENDER beef is produced from the best beef cattle breeds such as Angus, Hereford, Charolais, Simental and Limousin.

 

Animal welfare

Our cattle spend their lives roaming freely, mostly in green, rich pastures of central Poland. All farmers are fully trained in animal husbandry. We do not use hormone growth promotants. We only administer antibiotics to single animals when necessary for treatment.

Nutrition

Calves stay longer with mothers to guarantee better immunological system and natural growth. Our specialist nutritionists work hard to ensure our cattle receive the perfect balance of energy, protein, minerals and vitamins. Final excellent marbling comes from high energy grain finish.
