Like so many of you, we continue to closely monitor the developments regarding the spread of the coronavirus, known as COVID-19. Our team is in constant communication and is dedicated to doing our part to mitigate the potential spread of the disease while protecting our employees and ensuring that we can continue to produce our quality meat products during this challenging time.
Our team members are receiving regular updates on the spread of the disease and the Center for Disease Control (“CDC”) recommended practices and protocols for mitigating the spread of coronavirus. We’ve instituted enhanced hygiene practices for all employees, relaxed our work at home rules, implemented travel restrictions, and instituted strict rules regarding visitors, vendors, and others who conduct business on our premises. We are encouraging team members who feel sick to stay at home. In addition, we’ve implemented additional sanitation, screening, and usage of personal protective equipment procedures in our plants.
COVID-19 is not considered a food safety concern. The CDC has stated that “currently there is no evidence to support the transmission of COVID-19 associated with food”. In addition, the USDA and the FDA also have noted that there is no evidence to suggest that food produced in the United States can transmit COVID-19. We are committed to providing safe and wholesome food and our enhanced mitigation procedures are consistent with this critical mission.
While localized COVID-19 outbreaks have significantly impacted the meat and poultry industry, we are working diligently to manage our supply chain to meet our customers’ needs and continue to provide quality and wholesome meat products.
We’ll continue to closely monitor this ever-changing situation. Please join us in doing all we can by helping slow and stop the spread of coronavirus: www.cdc.gov.
Your NSP Quality Meats Team,
National Steak Processors
Boyle’s Famous Corned Beef
NSP unites three protein suppliers into the go-to custom supplier for foodservice chains (small to large), C-stores, and industrial companies. Formerly National Steak & Poultry, Boyle’s Famous Corned Beef, and Hausman Foods, NSP offers the combined range of products, techniques and specialty customization.
“What sets NSP apart from the pack is that we have the ability to work with lower volumes from a custom basis,” Mike Wilson, President of NSP, says. “We don’t just offer what is on the shelf.”
Headquartered out of Owasso, Okla., NSP develops and offers custom protein products and formulations to all foodservice chains; but small- to mid-sized chains and industrial customers can especially benefit by being able to purchase customized products in lower volumes, which larger manufacturers are less able to offer. NSP relies on its roots to provide this level of service:
National Steak & Poultry was founded more than 30 years ago as a steak cutter in Owasso, Okla. Since then it has grown in capacity and capability to set itself apart by delivering custom products for lower volume customers. The company mantra, “We don’t make our products, we make yours,” still applies to the combined NSP of today.
Boyle’s Famous Corned Beef was founded more than 80 years ago in Kansas City, Mo. With expertise in beef and pork products and pizza toppings, the brand brings its authority in crafting top-notch products and nurturing strong relationships to NSP.
Hausman Foods was founded 80 years ago in Corpus Christi, Texas, and mainly offers frozen beef patties, as well as breaded pork and beef products. It’s bringing its Texas roots and reputation for top quality to NSP.
Combining the products and functionality of these three companies, NSP can also boast expanded capacity, freight efficiencies and streamlined business functions—all for the benefit of the customer.
“[We] develop relationships that matter, products that perform, and we change with the customer and their needs,” Wilson says. “We take making your products personally. While we have standard products, we really stand by the thought process that ‘We don’t make our products, we make yours.’”
