Dakota Beef, the leading producer of premium certified organic beef in the U.S., and North Dakota Natural Beef (NDNB), a growing supplier of natural Angus beef, have entered into a co-packing partnership merging each company’s harvest and fabrication operations.
Dakota Beef will begin to process its organic product in NDNB’s facilities effective February 8, 2010.
With its own 150,000-acre, organic Angus ranch located in the high country of Eastern Oregon, Dakota Beef is the largest vertically-integrated organic beef processor in the United States. Certified 100% organic by the United States Department of Agriculture, their products are sold under the “Dakota Beef” brand to major retailers and foodservice distributors nationwide.
NDNB was established in 2005 as the direct result of a mandate from the North Dakota state legislature forming a Beef System Center of Excellence. North Dakota Natural Beef sells products under the “Dakota Farms” brand name.
