GREELEY, Colo., Jan. 20, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- JBS USA announces the launch of LaHerenciaBeef.com, a bilingual website that showcases our premium La Herencia® beef and variety meats program. The website serves as a resource for consumers who desire traditional Latino flavors as well as an informational tool for retail customers.
"Research shows that Hispanics eat beef 4-5 times per week, versus an average of 2-3 times per week for the general population," said Lyndsey Gjere, brand manager at JBS USA. "LaHerenciaBeef.com presents an exciting opportunity to reach this influential consumer base as well as provide key selling resources for our valued customers."
The Latino culture continues to have a growing influence on society, and 16% of non-Hispanic consumers are exploring ethnic foods, further driving growth in the consumption of many Latino food products. La Herencia offers lean beef with a vibrant red color and bright white marbling for the visual appeal that Hispanic consumers demand. Our comprehensive offering of both boxed beef and variety meats ensures that shoppers have all the ingredients they need for trusted family recipes.
"As we developed the website, we focused on the tender, tasteful cuts that are an essential part of some of the finest Latino meals and traditions," Gjere said. "LaHerencia.com provides recipes and reliable product information for consumers so they can create the most memorable moments with their families."
