MAUI, Hawaii – Giant Eagle, Pittsburgh, Pa., was recognized with the No. 2 Sales Volume Large Chain Retailer award at the Certified Angus Beef ® Annual Conference, held in Maui Sept. 26-28, for leadership in product quality, marketing and sales. Brand partners, including meat processors, distributors, chefs, retailers and cattle ranchers, celebrated the brand’s 40th anniversary and explored merchandising and marketing solutions to satisfy growing consumer demand for great-tasting beef.

Giant Eagle promotes the branded beef to customers year-round. A focus on offering beef cuts from the chuck and round helped customers identify new meal ideas. Buy-one, get-one promotions also brought customers to the meat case. During the summer, Giant Eagle’s Barb-I-Q promotion shared information on the brand’s quality and beef cooking tips in all forms of media, from print to social media.
