Are you tired of the same old selection of beef, poultry, or pork at your local grocery store? Are you a restaurant owner looking for a local meat market for your wholesale meat? You can turn to a company I trust: MAIN STREET QUALITY MEATS.

I trust  MAIN STREET QUALITY MEATS, because we investigated their history, licensing, and the way they do business. We also investigated the background of owner Richard Faddis.

As a result, I trust and endorse MAIN STREET QUALITY MEATS, and I am proud to declare them GEPHARDT APPROVED.

“We have the same quality day in and day out.” – Richard Faddis, Owner, Main Street Quality Meats

“We provide the best meats possible,” says owner Richard Faddis. “Our customers know we have the same quality day in and day out.”

But it’s more than just Richard’s word: MAIN STREET QUALITY MEATS has the certification to back it up. The company, in South Salt Lake, is the only SQF certified meat company in the valley.

SQF stands for Safe Quality Foods. In essence, that means Extreme Food Safety. “A SQF certification is recognized around the world and it means our meat market strictly complies with safe food procedures that go beyond the expected safety standards,” says Richard. “We follow the highest quality standards of preparation, processing, and handling.”

Also, the SQF program is a discipline that is totally voluntary.  And I, for one, am impressed that Richard and MAIN STREET QUALITY MEATS has the confidence to take the program on. Richard says SQF means one thing: knowledge.

“We know where every pound of meat is coming from and how it was raised,” says Richard. “We track every pound of meat we send out to restaurants and to homes.”

I know. I saw the paperwork. If meat does not fit the SQF quality standard, it is rejected by MAIN STREET QUALITY MEATS. In fact, some meat is rejected to be sold elsewhere.

According to Richard, MAIN STREET QUALITY MEATS is the product of two family owned and operated businesses, and has been offering the finest quality meats and service since 1956. Now employing fourth generation family members, Richard says MAIN STREET QUALITY MEATS is known for providing always fresh, never frozen, meat for their customers.

“Whether it’s for a family dinner or cookout, Main Street Quality Meats has a fine selection of pork, chicken, beef, rabbit, and all natural turkeys. We offer custom cut meats and great packages to our customers,” says Richard. “For the food service industry, we provide a variety of meat products for use in restaurants and catering, and we offer special rates and free delivery in the local area.”

“This is who we are,” Richard tells me. “We have been doing this since 1956. That’s what we do day in and day out.”

So there you go: MAIN STREET QUALITY MEATS: Now you know what our investigation revealed about this company’s history and their commitment to customer service.

And now you know why I trust MAIN STREET QUALITY MEATS, and why I am proud to declare them GEPHARDT APPROVED.
