Tyson Fresh Meats announced that its Chairman’s Reserve Prime Pork brand has qualified for the Seal of Excellence from the Master Chefs’ Institute, an international team of Certified Master Chefs.
The beef and pork subsidiary of Tyson Foods Inc. said in a release that the Seal signifies that Chairman’s Reserve Prime Pork products have been evaluated by independent experts and have qualified for the Master Chefs’ Institute standard of quality.
MCI works to recognize and promote excellence in foodservice and retail products. Almost 10 percent of all certified master chefs in America are affiliated with MCI and have achieved the highest level of culinary certification.
“Earning the Seal means a great deal to the Tyson Fresh Meats Team,” said Ozlem Worpel, senior brand manager for Tyson Fresh Meats.
The Institute evaluated all Chairman’s Reserve Prime Pork cuts against well-known competitors. All brands were evaluated individually and blindly, with identical commonly used cooking methods applied to each cut. MCI conducts rigorous testing that is unique to each product category. Criteria tested include: appearance, aroma, consistency, taste and texture, and if the product performs as claimed.
