Canadian beef farmers and ranchers take great pride and care to raise cattle using environmentally sustainable practices combined with world-class food safety and quality assurance systems.
The Canadian beef grading system helps ensure quality expectations are met every time. Canada’s top 3 grades represent 97% of the beef available for sale in Canada. Canada AA, AAA (including top tier AAA) and Canada Prime are similar to what you see referenced for the U.S. grades of Select, Choice and Prime.
A good value choice offering lower levels of marbling and typically fewer calories than Canada AAA and Prime Grades. Canada AA beef can be tender and flavourful and performs well with all popular cooking methods.
A great choice for high-quality beef. Canada AAA offers higher levels of marbling than Canada AA and is well suited for all popular cooking methods. Canada AAA will become a delicious family favourite when grilled, broiled, simmered or roasted to perfection.
Canadian beef brands that include only the most marbled (Top Tier) beef within the Canada AAA grade are an excellent choice for steakhouse-quality beef. These brands offer beef with the very best marbling, flavour and juiciness within the AAA grade.
An extraordinary choice for exclusive steakhouses, hotels and serious home chefs. Canada Prime is selected for maximum marbling, flavour and juiciness and only available in limited supply.
