Up North Jerky Outlet is a master distributor of premium jerky and smoked meat products. Their product line includes a large selection of beef, turkey, and wild game jerky, jerky sausage, and snack sticks. Up North Jerky Outlet has reseller programs for convenience store owners, retailers, and online web marketers, as well as custom programs for distributors. These programs provide strong in-store profit centers with excellent margins and exceptional customer loyalty.
Paul Lyons, Up North Jerky Outlet CEO, is impressed by the venue at the America's Food & Beverage Show. Attendees have the opportunity to explore and sample the largest selection of food and beverages from around the world specifically catering to the taste of the Americas. "We are looking forward to presenting our product line to an audience that includes both national and international tastes. Authentic Michigan made smoked meat products will be on display along will 450 exhibitors from over 28 countries."
Paul adds that Up North Jerky Outlet will be sampling a new product line of thick cut premium beef, turkey, and wild game jerky. "This is the fresh, thick cut product that appeals to true jerky lovers. The new premium product has authentic old time smokehouse flavors in a tender cut. And we can offer a much wider selection of flavors because of more flexible small batch smokehouse schedules." Paul considers the premium thick cut jerky to be a real breakthrough. "Now our customers can enjoy high quality, tender meat snacks that just haven't been available on the retail market."
Scott Christ, National Sales Manager for Up North Jerky Outlet, 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 onto our products."
Up North Jerky Outlet beef jerky is sold in national outdoor 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 outdoor retailers, but it also is popular in convenience stores and a surprising range of other venues. The market demographic is expanding all the time.”
Exhibiting at the Miami show provides an opportunity to meet potential resellers and recruit independent sales representatives, according to Scott. "Up North Jerky Outlet is actively recruiting independent regional sales representatives. We offer an excellent opportunity for aggressive sales reps to add a new line to their portfolios. The market for premium jerky is expanding fast and our products fit this market segment perfectly."
According to Scott, a major reason for the expansion of the market is the introduction of products like Honey BBQ beef jerky. Premium beef jerky is now seen as a preferred snack food or an alternative to fast food lunches. "A pack of beef jerky, a piece of fruit and a drink are a healthy lunch alternative to burgers and fries. People like to have choices."
Honey BBQ 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. Beef jerky is spicy-sweet with rich texture and a truly beefy flavor. Honey BBQ beef jerky retains a moist and tender texture that sets it apart from commonly available beef jerky products.
Up North Jerky Outlet has a full product line of beef jerky, turkey jerky, wild game jerky and jerky sausage. In addition to Honey BBQ, the beef jerky lineup includes flavors like sweet 'n' hot, peppercorn, blazing hot, teriyaki, original and cherry maple. Hunters sausage and snack sticks are available in a variety of delicious smokehouse flavors.
