We are proud to be at the forefront of the American Wagyu Beef Movement. Continue reading to learn about what makes our beef so special.
You’ve probably heard of Wagyu beef before—a particular breed of cattle that originated in Japan, known for being exceptionally marbled with a soft, buttery taste. As Wagyu cattle were brought to the United States, the Prime Plus Cattle Co. began crossbreeding Wagyu with Angus cattle to achieve a meat that is not just soft and buttery, but also has a hearty, beefy flavor. American Wagyu beef is the perfect combination of flavors and textures to provide you a delicious beef experience.
Our beef is overseen by the master, Mr. Shogo Takeda of Hokkaido, Japan. Mr. Takeda has been in the Wagyu business since 1954 making him the premier master breeder. Our beef is born and raised on small family ranches throughout the United States. Our beef is raised WITHOUT: Antibiotics, Hormones, Growth Promotants, Animal By-Products, or Artificial Ingredients. Our beef is ALWAYS: Vegetarian Fed, Minimally Processed, and Source and Age Verified.
WHAT MAKES IT UNIQUE?
American Wagyu beef is a melt-in-your mouth experience. Flakes of marbeling provide moisture that is rich with flavor, different than any other beef product available. Wagyu beef is considered to be a Japanese delicacy. The high content of quality fats can melt quickly and leave a texture that is both velvety and delicate.
American Wagyu Beef has a higher ratio of mono-unsaturated fat (the good fat) and a higher concentration of beneficial Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids which have anti-inflammatory properties, support heart health, and aid cognitive function. They play a crucial role in cell structure and function, regulate blood clotting, and reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases.

WHY BARS & BITES?
Our founders, REW & John, started their American Wagyu journey by selling the beef to chefs all around the country. What they noticed was a white space in the meat snack industry for products that come from high-quality meat sources that taste good and are actually good for you. Also, at the time, anything with the name “Wagyu” in it was either too expensive or too inaccessible to the everyday American. So, they set out to create a line of American Wagyu Beef snacks that are seasoned and smoked to perfection, making them an exceptional protein-packed on-the-go snack!
