Troy, Michigan (PRWEB) June 30, 2012
Beef jerky is fast becoming one of the most popular snack foods in the country. There has been a remarkable increase in the number of beef jerky producers and the variety of flavors available. Cherry maple beef jerky from Up North Jerky is one of the truly unique new varieties available on the national market. Located in Michigan, Up North Jerky distributes genuine "Up North" style jerky nationally to retail and dedicated outlet stores and through the online store http://www.upnorthjerky.com.
Cherry maple beef jerky from Northern Michigan is world famous for its unique flavor and texture. Choice cuts of whole muscle meat are marinated with special spices then naturally smoked to perfection. The beef jerky has only a hint of sweet to go along with the rich texture and beefy flavor. Cherry maple beef jerky retains a moist and tender texture that sets it apart from commonly available beef jerky products.
Scott Christ, National Sales Manager for Up North Jerky, points out that the success of premium beef jerky products is a national trend. "We sell far more beef jerky in Florida, Tennessee and Texas than in Michigan. The flavors and moist texture of Michigan-style beef jerky makes it a favorite anywhere. Beef jerky lovers are really catching on to our products."
Up North Jerky beef jerky is sold in national outdoors sporting goods stores, but also has a wider consumer appeal. Scott Christ says that there is no typical beef jerky lover. "You just can't stereotype the beef jerky consumer. Beef jerky sells well in outdoors retailers, but it also is popular in convenience stores and a surprising range of other venues. The market demographic is expanding all the time.”
According to Scott, a major reason for the expansion of the market is the introduction of new products like cherry maple beef jerky. Premium beef jerky is now seen as a preferred snack food or an alternative to fast food lunches. "A 3 or 4 oz. pack of beef jerky, a piece of fruit and a soft drink are a healthy lunch alternative to burgers and fries. People like to have choices."
Cherry maple beef jerky is available in big one pound re-sealable jars and four ounce and eight ounce soft packs. In addition to smaller sizes, two and four pound packages are available for those looking for bulk beef jerky options. These premium North Country specialties are now available online for direct shipment via USPS Priority mail or UPS.
Up North Jerky also has a full product line of beef jerky, turkey jerky, wild game jerky and jerky sausage. For a more complete description of available products for resellers log on to the Up North Jerky Outlet business website at http://www.upnorthjerkyoutlet.com.
