Wholesale Meat Terms to Know

Wholesalers butcher and package large quantities of meat, then market it in fresh or frozen form to retailers, including restaurants and supermarkets. Some meat wholesalers offer a variety of cuts of beef, pork, mutton or lamb, and poultry. Others specialize in a particular type or cut of meat. Below are useful terms to know for understanding the wholesale process.

  • Wholesale Pricing - The main advantage to purchasing meat from a wholesale supplier is discount pricing. Because wholesalers purchase large quantities of meat in bulk, they can typically offer lower prices for the same quality product.
  • Cuts - A particular slice of beef, pork, poultry or mutton that a butcher cuts from a specific part of the animal. There are numerous terms for different cuts of meat, the most popular including T-bone steaks, strip steaks, and ribs. Sirloins, tenderloins, roasts, shoulders and briskets are also common cuts.
  • Wholesale Seafood Distributor - Just as wholesale distributors play a large role in the meat, industry, so too do they act as a middleman between fishermen and retailers. Seafood wholesalers market fresh, frozen and live varieties of fish, from salmon and sole to shellfish such as scallops, shrimp and crabs.
  • The Meat Inspection Act - This law ensures food safety in the United States by requiring inspection of animals before they are slaughtered and defining standards of cleanliness for meatpacking facilities.
  • Organic Meat - An official United States Department of Agriculture certification referring to meat produced without the use of hormones, antibiotics or other chemicals. Animals raised for organic meat eat organic feed and graze in pastures that are not sprayed with synthetic fertilizers or herbicides. Because of the extra care and cost involved with raising organic meat, it costs more than factory farmed meat.

    Buying meats like pork and beef in bulk can save lots of money in the long run. Since meat boasts one of the highest price tags in your grocery cart, your initial stock-up at a wholesale club may cost you quite a bit. But if you examine your savings and compare what you would’ve spent per pound on items like poultry and buffalo chicken at a retail grocery market, you’ll be amazed at the savings. As long as you have adequate freezer space to store it all until you need it, you’ve just saved yourself not only some cash but also the hassle of heading back to the store each week. Meat gives us protein and helps us to build muscles. Red meat in moderation is thought to be good for the heart, while pork is naturally low in salt and boasts plenty of vitamins and minerals, such as iron and zinc. Meat wholesale suppliers and distributors may sell anything from chicken to fillet lamb prime to ham. They may also sell seafood, such as salmon, scallops, and shrimp. Fish is a great nutritional source; salmon in particular is a good source of protein, plus it packs a punch in terms of Omega-3s, vitamin D, calcium, and iron. You can buy meat on a wholesale level at a wholesale shop, which offers bulk discounts when customers purchase sausage, poultry, and steak in bulk. Discount product wholesale deals are especially great when stocking up for a big party. Restaurants, schools, and butchers also buy in bulk to save money. Some wholesale markets specialize in one particular niche area, such as gourmet quality foods, from ribs and steak to beef and pork. They may offer only the best cuts of these meats for butchers, whether frozen or fresh, organic or low fat.
