GREELEY, Colo., July 31, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- JBS USA announces the launch of CedarRiverFarms.com, an interactive website that highlights our premium Cedar River Farms® Natural Beef program. The website serves as an easy-to-use sales resource and informational tool for retail and foodservice operators, as well as a useful source of information for consumers.
"With the launch of CedarRiverFarms.com, we dispel the mystery of Natural beef," said John Punis, director of Natural beef brands at JBS USA Beef. "This new site explains our Natural approach to producing consistently superior beef, shares delicious consumer recipes and provides our customers with a valuable resource to make their business stronger."
Cedar River Farms® is known for a quality and consistency that provides a true point of difference for retailers and foodservice operators.

CedarRiverFarms.com explains the results and how the superior quality and consistency of Cedar River Farms® can positively impact the business of our customers.
"Consumers want to feel good about the food they serve their families and have confidence in the quality of the beef they purchase," Punis said.
