Better Beef – and Much More

Premier Proteins

When a massive chain of fast food restaurants advertises ‘Top Grade Sirloin’ or ‘100 percent Angus Beef’ it is somewhat deceptive – and nowhere near the quality of beef provided by Premier Proteins. Premier Proteins is a supplier of ultra-high quality meat to the retail and food services sector. It specializes in Wagyu/Premier American Kobe Beef®, Japanese Kobe beef and Premier American Grass-Fed Beef® along with Berkshire pork. Business in Focus spoke with its, owner Timothy Haas, to learn more.

“Made in China.” This notification can strike fear into the hearts of corporations and businesses around the world. Huge production capacity, cheap labour and low prices are a detriment for those who choose to compete with the nation of 1.3 billion.

As we all know, polyurethane foam is present in a wide range of products for both household and commercial purposes. Unfortunately, the petroleum it’s made from makes it largely unsustainable. In addition, foams are filled with toxic agents, catalysts and fire retardants that are harmful to people’s health and damaging to the environment. Malama Composites is looking to end that by commercializing their newly developed line of non-toxic, rigid urethane foam made from sustainable resources.

Water is our most precious resource, and as the population grows, more of it is being used and wasted. Wastewater needs to be transformed back into clean water before our need for water makes our need for oil seem like an issue of minor significance. The same applies to the millions of tons of solid waste that we generate every day.
