Cargill Meat Solutions recently announced the introduction of Good Nature pork, the Wichita, Kan.-based processor’s new all-natural, antibiotic-free pork brand available to both retail and foodservice operators.

Good Nature pork is sourced from hogs raised on family farms in the Midwest. Animals selected for the program are never administered antibiotics, growth stimulants or hormones, the company says.

Cargill also maintains strict natural standards: Good Nature pork is minimally processed and contains no artificial ingredients. One of the company’s processing innovations for the Good Nature pork brand is the use of air chilling, which helps ensure the product’s color, tenderness and moisture levels, Cargill says.

Marketing support for the Good Nature pork brand will include promotional elements for retail and foodservice, as well as a Web site where customers and consumers can learn about the product and download recipes.
