The Stop & Shop meat department has added an exclusive, co-branded partnership with the 1855 brand to its Taste of Inspirations store brand. 

The Taste of Inspirations Black Angus beef will feature cuts of beef from the 1855 brand, a USDA choice Angus beef served in fine-dining restaurants throughout New England with cuts like ribeye, strip steaks, tenderloins and top sirloin. 

The 1855 company carefully chooses family ranches raising Angus cattle, only selecting ranchers that meet a strict criteria that they require. The company said only one in eight cattle qualifies and becomes USDA Certified as the 1855 brand. This quality is carried over to the Taste of Inspirations store brand — the Black Angus beef will be sourced from grain-rich areas of the northern plains region, all cuts of beef will be marbled for a rich, juicy flavor and uncompromising tenderness, processed in only two U.S. facilities.

“We are excited to offer a superior line of Black Angus beef that represents top quality at a great value for our customers,” said Gordon Reid, president of Stop & Shop. “With more than a dozen options in-store, this new offering will add a fine-tasting choice to small gatherings for the Labor Day holiday or any meals at home.”

Stop & Shop’s Taste of Inspirations line features deli meats, sauces, marinades, appetizers, frozen treats and more. The products will be found in all Stop & Shop stores in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York and New Jersey. The Taste of Inspirations Black Angus beef assortment includes an array of tender steaks and roasts as well a variety of ground beef and patty options. Stop & Shop is also making it easy to cook this restaurant-quality beef at home with recipes to get customers inspired like Grilled Ribeye with Chimichurri Sauce and Grilled Steak with Corn Salsa.
