Where's the beef.......Mike's Meats?

Thank you all who have asked about our progress. Thank you so much for your patience. I know it's been a long time coming, but we're finally able to make an announcement.

Behind the scenes, over these last many months, we have been working diligently to attempt to do something that has never been done in Ecuador on any scale.

We felt that in order to offer the best possible product, we had to control *every* aspect of our supply chain. The breed, the age of the steer, how and what they were fed, where they were kept, how they were "finished", How the product was transported, how and by whom the beef was aged then processed and ultimately how it was packaged.

A tall order as you can imagine. However, I'm very pleased to announce that Mike's Meats has partnered with Delicato Piggi's (a USDA quality operation) here in Cuenca to age, process and package the beef we acquire from one of the finest cattle farms in all of Ecuador, who we have contracted to supply all of our beef....strictly according to our "recipe". Even to the extent of hiring a university trained cattle dietitian to assure only the very best quality beef, every time.

In addition to our prime American style cut beef products, we will be able to offer chicken, pork and premium quality deli products as well.

Our customers will be able to purchase our products in a variety of ways:

- We will be opening an American Style butcher shop (date to be announced) to be able to offer fresh cut aged beef the way you like it.
- Online. We will have a state-of-the-art website with an E-commerce option for those customers who prefer to purchase and pay online.
- Emails, texts and phone calls are always welcome.
- Home delivery available. Orders delivered within two hours of placement.

Essentially, our goal was to be able only the highest quality products and the best service possible. I feel confident that we will meet your every expectation.

Our beef is (wet) aged for at least three weeks. We will be using Cryovac packaging shipped from the US. Cryovac is known worldwide as the leading manufacturer of food packaging materials. They have been involved in every aspect of our packaging from the very beginning. Both our primary (aging pouches) and our secondary packaging will allow our customers to keep our products in the refrigerator for up to three months. Up to 6 months if frozen.

So, when is all this going to happen?

We expect to be able to open sometime in the next six weeks. Best guess, 1st or 2nd week of April. But, we'll be sure to keep everyone posted.

We look forward to seeing you all again and thank you very much for your patience. We know you'll agree it was well worth the wait.
