PathProven® is Performance Foodservice’s exclusive process of ensuring the quality of Braveheart Black Angus Beef®. Part of this program incorporates DNA TraceBack®, the nation’s first-of-its-kind DNA-based traceability system. Through this unique process, we confirm that our product is a majority Black Angus—the highest percentage in the industry, and we establish a link between each animal and each cut of meat. The PathProven system also includes standards for feeding, health, and humane treatment, which are just as important as an animal’s genetics in determining quality. Through PathProven, you can be absolutely confident that your Braveheart Beef will meet the same premium standard every time.
