Certified Piedmontese Becomes First Food Brand to Be Certified By The Paleo Diet®

Premium Beef Brand from Lone Creek Cattle Co. Meets New PaleoFLEX™ Certification Standards

BOULDER, CO – JANUARY 10, 2023 – The Paleo Diet® has announced its first food certification partner in our newly launched food certification program. Certified Piedmontese, a beef brand of Lone Creek Cattle Co., is the first food brand to meet the stringent, science-based standards for quality and health set by the new PaleoFLEX™ certification from The Paleo Diet. Certified Piedmontese has begun merchandising 57 PaleoFLEX certified beef products for sale direct to consumer and will launch grocer and retailer merchandising later this year.

The Paleo Diet was founded by Dr. Loren Cordain, the pioneering researcher of the modern Paleolithic nutrition movement, which emphasizes natural meats, fish and seafood, fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds. Its new food certification programs, TRUEPALEO™ and PaleoFLEX™ are designed to identify the healthiest foods and to clarify confusing claims and labeling in the marketplace.

Based in Lincoln, Nebraska, Lone Creek Cattle Company is a leading producer of rare, Italian heritage Piedmontese beef and is known for its farm-to-table approach to cattle ranching that ensures traceability, environmental sustainability, humane handling, and responsible resource management. The Company’s cattle are also verified for a variety of non-GMO and production-related claims by third-party verifier, Where Food Comes From, Inc.

“By achieving PaleoFLEX™ certification, Certified Piedmontese beef has met our high standards based on decades of science to be a more natural, better-for-you beef product,” said Trevor Connor, CEO of The Paleo Diet, LLC. “We are excited to support Lone Creek Cattle Company in the marketing and sales of their certified product line to a vast market of health-conscious shoppers.”

“Certified Piedmontese grass-fed, grass-finished beef, is source-verified, nutritious, high-quality tender beef that has been raised humanely, sustainably, and regeneratively with the cattle and the land and its resources in mind,” said Ben Mohl, Online Sales Marketing Manager for Certified Piedmontese. “Meeting the exceptionally high standard for health through Paleo Diet certification confirms that our products are among the best and healthiest in the beef category.”

As a first-in-category certification partner, Certified Piedmontese will enjoy robust marketing support from The Paleo Diet organization. The Paleo Diet plans to support the brand with promotion through social media, newsletter features, custom content, and tradeshow and event marketing throughout 2023.
