The Piedmontese breed originated in the Piedmont region of northwest Italy, where it was first discovered among the region’s robust history of fine wines and rich cuisines over 100 years ago. Prized for its noticeably heavy musculature, the Piedmontese breed’s unique genetic composition means that these cattle naturally develop a significantly greater muscle mass compared to conventional cattle. At the same time, muscle fibers remain tender without the need for excess marbling. The result is consistently superior beef that is both lean and tender.
Certified Piedmontese cattle are never given antibiotics or steroids. They're raised through the ranch-to-fork approach that ensures traceability, environmental sustainability, humane animal handling, and responsible resource management at every step.
