The Defense Commissary Agency (DeCA) announced this week that it has awarded its lamb and veal business across the country to Superior Farms. More than 250 commissaries will now be on the program.
DeCA operates a worldwide chain of commissaries that provide groceries to military personnel, retirees and their families, offering significant savings to these patrons. In years past, the agency maintained multiple suppliers across the country. Management decided that, to be most effective, they needed the program to be under one national umbrella.
"We're thrilled to supply American products to American troops and retired military from coast-to-coast," said Craig Powell, vice president of sales and marketing for Superior Farms. "It's the highest quality product available to military patrons and at the same time it's a great boost to our dedicated American family ranchers."
The commissaries will carry a total of 53 stock-keeping units nationwide, offering the full range of primal and sub primals as well as further processed and case-ready items. A number of packaging types will be implemented in different parts of the country to maintain freshness and optimize shelf life.
