Marsh launches local beef program

Marsh Supermarkets has introduced a local beef program at 38 stores in Indiana and Ohio with Angus beef that contains no growth hormones or antibiotics.

The Indianapolis-based retailer said the eight participating farms in Indiana and Ohio went through an extensive process for inclusion in the program. The farms have certified that the cattle are antibiotic-free from birth and never fed any animal byproducts.

The meats also contain no preservatives, dry rubs, marinades or other flavor enhancements.

Products are marked with a “100% Local” decal in the meat case.

“Consumers increasingly want to know where their food comes from, and how it is produced,” Harry Giglio, group VP of fresh, said in a press release.

“With high quality programs like these, we’re giving our loyal customers what they want: fresh, natural, high-quality foods.”
