Dot Foods Launches Partnership with Old World Provisions

MT. STERLING, Ill. (September 15, 2010)—Dot Foods announced it is now distributing Old World Provisions products nationwide. 

The New York-based company supplies premium deli products, such as pastrami, corned beef and roast beef, hot dogs and cooked sausages under the New York State National and Helmbolds brand, as well as a full line of Certified Angus Beef® brand products. Old World Provision’s President Mark Shuket had this to say about making Old World Provisions fourth generation family recipes available nationwide through Dot Foods, “Our ability to distribute through Dot Foods will change the way that we sell, service and interact with our customers. We have perfected our products through four generations of hard work and it will give me great pleasure to offer them to anyone looking for the best. From our world famous hot pastrami and corned beef to our line of Certified Angus Beef ® products, everything we make is crafted the Old World way because that is who we are.”

“With this partnership, Old World Provisions’ best in class products – pastrami, corned beef, roast beef and frankfurters – will be available across the country. We are also pleased to offer Certified Angus Beef® brand products to distributors that have been looking for ways to expand the brand into new categories,” said Rodd Willis, Dot’s director of protein sales and purchasing. “With Dot carrying these extended items in inventory, distributors will be able to buy the meat in quantities that make sense to them.”

Brett Erickson, director of Value-Added Products for Certified Angus Beef LLC, shared the enthusiasm expressed by Shuket and Willis.

“This opportunity allows many of our distributors access to these high-quality products for the first time,” said Erickson. “A lot of distributors have said they love our product, but it takes time to build business with any new item. Dot is already distributing across the United States, so our licensed distributors can start selling and request additional cases as their business grows. This gives restaurateurs the opportunity to serve Certified Angus Beef ® brand quality across the menu, and not just in fresh beef.”
