THE BLACK, fully traceable 100% special selected Black Angus cattle, raised in the open green fields of Uruguay and grain-fed in the open sky. Black Angus cattle is famous for the genetic marbling the young animals have, just grazing on the grasslands of Uruguay. In combination with a 120-days+ grain-diet this results in incredible good beef; the incredible good beef of THE BLACK. Controlling the production process from the cattle breeder to production of the beef makes THE BLACK a fully traceable beef brand, from ‘farm to fork’.
The only Uruguayan beef which is grain-fed for minimum 200 days and Angus certified, is UMI. ‘The Art of Beef’ is the philosophy of UMI and therefore the beef is packed in a true artwork, painted by Ignacio Zuloaga. A very small amount of cattle produces the beef which has the minimum marbling score of 5, which is the strict requirement of UMI. Only during production of the beef cuts the selection is made of what is good enough for UMI.
Heritage Angus Beef provides what health-conscious consumers are demanding in beef: cattle which is never fed with antibiotics, hormones or steroids.

Don Pedro is not just a beef brand, it is a story about beef. It all starts in Uruguay, home of the ‘La Celeste’ (‘The Sky Blue’) national football team and quite some cattle. We can just mention that this country of a mere 3.000.000 inhabitants and a surface of 176.000 km² allows the 12.000.000 cattle heads to graze and live freely in the open fields at open sky all year round for their entire lives. With more than 10.000 m² of land (over 2 soccer fields) for each head, abundant water sources and vast grasslands, we can ensure they live a wonderful life which results in a magnificent flavor, tenderness and many nutrients.
Japanese Wagyu is considered the most exclusive beef in the world and a true experience for anyone who has ever tasted it.

The cattle, raised following centuries old Japanese traditions and fed over 840 days results in A4 and A5 quality with a BMS up to 12. All beef is accompanied with a grading certificate from the Japan Meat Grading Association; a copy is always available at Carnimex.
ANGUS by Miguel Vergara – It is a journey in search of the authentic flavor of the meat that begins in a small region in the north of Ireland, where the best specimens of this noble breed are selected and then breed in Spain. Once here, they receive personalized attention aimed at enhancing all their qualities. The Miguel Vergara Group combined the tradition inherited from a family business dedicated to livestock (largest herd of livestock in Spain) with the highest standards of quality and excellence. The 4.7 million square metres for cattle breeding, the 300 days grain-diet and the AENOR Animal Welfare certificate makes the Angus beef well-known all over the world.
Iberico pork is the only breed of pig in Europe that can live wild. In Salamanca region they live in freedom feeding on acorns which makes their meat acquire unique and special qualities; especially oleic acid. The content of this acid in Iberian acorn-fed pork (58-65%) is quite similar to those found in olive oil (65-70%) or avocado. Due to the infiltrated fat, the whole pork gives more high-quality cuts than regular pork.
