Swedesboro, NJ (PRWEB) March 04, 2014
Rastelli Direct, an online provider of gourmet meats, seafood, and prepared meals, has set an agreement with Katama Foods, a manager of organic, sustainable food brands, namely organic beef. The new deal, which makes Rastelli the exclusive sales and marketing company for Katama, will allow the company to expand its offerings of organic and sustainable meats to continue their efforts to become a healthier brand.
The company already provides an extensive menu of gourmet meats, seafood, and heat-and-serve menu items, along with a selection of meats that are grass-fed and steroid, hormone, antibiotic, and GMO-free. "Our partnership with Katama is a big boost to Rastelli Foods' corporate strategy, which is to focus on growing our participation in the sustainable foods sector and in retail-ready organic foods," said Rastelli's co-founder and President Ray Rastelli. With Scott Lively, CEO of Katama Foods, overseeing Rastelli's sustainable foods division, their list of organic offerings will become even more comprehensive.
Rastelli was also one of the first plants in the United States to become USDA-certified to produce and cut organic products, cutting out the middle-man. This fact and the new agreement with Katama have worked in tandem to make Rastelli one of the largest organic beef companies in the US.
The company plans to expand by constructing a 50,000 square-foot addition to the Swedesboro, NJ headquarters that will facilitate the fabrication and packaging of organic and natural meat, sustainable seafood, and retail-ready prepared organic foods. These plans will be fully carried-out in late Summer 2014.
