Meat District Debuts Burgers In Kroger, Celebrates With Giveaway


Los Angeles-based Meat District has expanded its burger distribution to the meat aisle of Kroger grocery stores nationwide. To celebrate the expansion, Meat District is giving away $10,000 in a contest.

“Our partnership with Kroger, the nation’s largest grocery chain, marks a major milestone for us. We’re thrilled and honored to be partnering with Kroger,” said Zack Leveson, COO of Golden West Food Group. “But more importantly, this partnership means that high-quality meat products will be available to a lot more people nationwide.”

Kroger stores will be offering two types of Meat District’s fresh burger patties. “The O.G.” is made from 100 percent Angus beef chunk, brisket and short rib while the “Steak House” is a 100 percent Angus beef tri-tip gourmet burger with garlic peppercorn seasoning.

The seasonal offerings will include The Shaq Burger, a half-pound burger patty made with a blend of chuck, brisket and short rib. The Hatch Chile Pepper Jack patty is made with the same blend of premium steak cuts.

Launching in April 2019, Meat District celebrates the Kroger distribution milestone with the brand’s three-year anniversary. This milestone follows Meat District’s partnership with basketball star Shaquille O’Neal. In a recent social post, Shaq thanked Kroger and spoke about his partnership with Meat District.

“I’m so excited for our Meat District products to be introduced in more than 2,500 Kroger stores nationwide,” O’Neal said. “Shoutout to the fine folks over there, we’re really looking forward to developing this partnership with you.

To celebrate the recent growth, Meat District is introducing a giveaway, The “Best Burger Challenge,” designed to give burger fans the chance to show off their grill skills in a way that highlights creative cooking and burger assembly.

Customers will be able to take a photo or a video of their creations and upload them to Twitter, Instagram or TikTok with the hashtags #bestburgerchallenge and #contest while tagging @eatmeatdestrict to be eligible for entry.

  • One grand prize winner will be awarded $10,000, a year’s supply of Meat District products and an additional $500 gift card to a local grocery store.
  • Ten other winners will also be given a $500 gift card to their grocery store of choice.

Meat District products can be found at all major retailers and are distributed nationally on a weekly basis and online at Buy.EatMeatDistrict.com.

After the past two years of uncertainty and changed plans due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we all hoped that 2022 might bring back a sense of normalcy.

However, with government and independent data confirming 40 years of inflation highs and Wall Street entering a bear market, grocers now have new challenges to face.

In this webinar, we will hear from Todd Taylor of Neighborhood Fresh and Darlene Murphy of Metcalfe’s Market about why shopper loyalty is so important in this time of inflation.
