I’m very happy to finally present the Natural Kosher Beef Scorecard and hope my readers will find it useful in making better buying decisions. In this post I’ll be giving some general info to help you better understand the rating system and in the coming weeks I’ll give in depth reviews of the competing brands: KOL Foods, Grow and Behold (G&B), Teva and Tevya’s Ranch. Instead of using stars I’ve chosen the more apropos option of a brisket rating system. It ranges from a “Terrible 1-brisket” rating all the way to the “Perfect 5-Briskets (1st Cut)” ranking. The scorecard also contains two separate reports. The 1st of these presents company info and the overall brisket rating, the 2nd reveals the scores received in each of the different categories. Also the card can now be found anytime by clicking on the Beef Scorecard tab found above. Please note that the scorecard is based on questions asked to company reps as well as my industry knowledge and that the ratings constitute my best personal assessment of the information I’m able to obtain. Much of the design and inspiration for this has come from the Cornucopia Institute’s organic egg and dairy scorecards and I’d encourage those of you who enjoy this post to also visit their site. If you’d like to know more about other brands of kosher beef please contact me and I’ll consider adding them to the scorecard.
