The American Testing Institute recently awarded Premium Standard Farms with a Gold Medal Taste Award for its natural, fresh premium pork products.

Professional Chefs from ATI judge products on their individual attributes including appearance, freshness and taste.

"Taste is the top consideration when awarding a Gold Medal," says S. Patrick Finney, Culinary Director for the American Tasting Institute. "Good taste is what brings customers back for more."

Being vertically integrated allows PSF to control every aspect of the pork chain from the initial genetic makeup to the final product.
