Alberta Beef Producers is hailing a new partnership between JBS Foods Canada and Kanematsu, “a well-respected and leading food-service/distribution company based in Japan.”

JBS Foods Canada said the arrangement will see Kanematsu distribute products such as the premium beef Northern Gold brand and the Canadian Diamond Black Angus brand.

The partnership is exciting and reflects “the hard work and dedication beef producers in Alberta, and across Western Canada, put into raising exceptional beef,” said ABP chair Kelly Smith-Fraser.

“The Alberta Beef story is well known and admired around the world,” added JBS Foods Canada president, David Colwell.
