Verde Farms, Woburn, Mass., launched new 100% grass-fed, 100% free-range sausages and hot dogs to its portfolio of organic beef offerings.
Verde's 100% grass-fed, 100% free-range, all-beef hot dogs and dinner sausages are sourced from humanely-raised beef raised entirely on open pasture.
The uncured hot dogs come in All Natural and Organic options.
Inspired by classic smokehouse styles across the country, Verde's uncured dinner sausages combine flavors of smoke and heat with zesty pepper and cool, fresh cheese, available in Hardwood Smoked (a classic, Texas-style smokehouse beef flavor), Hatch Green Chile and Cheddar (features New Mexico green peppers) and Chorizo and Queso Fresco (which combines smoky paprika and smooth, fresh cheese).
Both hot dogs and sausages will be on retailers’ shelves in early May.
"Most nights in Uruguay, grass-fed beef is on the table, shared with family and friends as an extension of the gaucho way of life," says Dana Ehrlich, chief executive officer. "From rib-eyes and grinds to our new hot dogs and sausages, our carefully-crafted products embody this true grass-fed tradition, and consumers can trust that our products' incredible flavor is not at the expense of responsible sourcing – in fact, it's because of it."
Verde also created four varieties of ready-to-cook marinated beef:
- Carne Asada Flank Steak. A combination of paprika, chili powder and spices to give an authentic Latin American flare.
- Korean-Style Sesame Sirloin. A fusion of sesame seeds, chives and spice to give a sweet, savory and spicy flavor.
- Green Chimichurri Flank Steak. A natural mix of parsley, bell peppers and other premium spices to give an authentic Uruguayan experience.
- Gaucho Steakhouse Tri-Tip Kabobs. A balanced blend of garlic, smoked paprika and spices for classic steakhouse taste.
Verde's marinades and steaks also now come in skin-pack packaging featuring a 100% recyclable pre-formed tray with a manufacturing process that reduces waste by 40%, energy use by 30% and overall greenhouse gas emissions by 20%.
