“Months ago, we identified a need for another brand in the Kosher hot dog category,” said David L. Van Kampen, president and COO of Best Chicago Meat Co. “We welcome this opportunity to add David’s Kosher to our quality brands. We are proud to can offer a superior product at lower prices.
“The frank has a superior taste and is naturally smoked,” he added. “It’s also gluten free, and no fillers, soy, artificial colors or by-products are used.”
Van Kampen said David’s Kosher all-beef hot dogs will be on grocery shelves March 15. In addition, David’s Kosher is introducing a second product called “The Classic,” a hot dog made from Kosher chicken and beef.
Before the acquisition of the brand by Best Chicago Meat Co., David’s Kosher was owned by Agri Star Meat & Poultry LLC in Postville, Iowa.
“I feel Best Chicago Meat has a tremendous opportunity to introduce David’s Kosher in Chicagoland retailers as well as grow the brand nationally,” Van Kampen said.
Best Chicago Meat currently offers four major brands: David’s Kosher, Moo & Oink, Jemmburger and Glenmark.
“Best Chicago Meat excels at quality and reliability,” Van Kampen said. “We feel we provide a market basket of exceptional products to customers, and we are bringing David’s Kosher an unparalleled level of quality, value and excellence.”
