Demand for bison has been growing steadily since chefs and consumers began touting the delicious taste and nutritional advantages of this superior protein. “Bison meat is nutrient dense because of the proportion of protein, fat, mineral, and fatty acids to its caloric value,” said Kelly Long, partner and CEO. “There are higher amounts of iron and B12 than other animal proteins, and 30% less fat than beef. The flavour profile is slightly richer, sweeter and cleaner than beef and it can be cooked in much the same way.“
Bison meat has become part of a culinary revolution, and Noble Premium Bison is meeting that demand through a commitment to transparency and best practices. “We believe our customers have a right to know everything about our bison—where it comes from, how it’s raised and handled, and what goes into making it a premium product,” said Doug Griller, producer and partner. “We’ve worked hard to develop the very best practices to ensure the safety and quality of the bison we sell. Our products are processed at the only single-species SQF-certified plant in North America and with our vertical integration, we can maintain control of our product from ranch to retail.”
