WAL­MART ADDS AN­GUS BEEF TO ITS SHELVES

The Denver Post - - BUSINESS -

Just in time for Fourth of July bar­be­cues, Wal­mart has up­graded its beef to cer­ti­fied An­gus across the U.S. as the fight for food shop­pers’ cash in­ten­si­fies.

For the past year, the na­tion’s big­gest gro­cer worked with meat gi­ants in­clud­ing Tyson Foods Inc. and Cargill Inc. to se­cure a sup­ply of An­gus steaks and roasts at no ad­di­tional cost to con­sumers, said Scott Neal, Wal­mart’s se­nior vice pres­i­dent of meat, seafood and qual­ity con­trol. The higher-qual­ity cuts have been avail­able in all of Wal­mart’s 4,700 U.S. stores since March, but the re­tailer hasn’t an­nounced or ad­ver­tised the shift yet.
