We at Shamrock Foods know that your COP item has to shine, that's why we take extra care and effort at every step to make sure our products meet the most exacting specifications. We start with only the highest quality meats: corn-fed Midwestern beef, lamb, fresh poultry, tender pork, delicate veal, fresh ground beef and flown-in-daily seafood. Our attention to detail helps you deliver to your customers the same thing that we strive for—satisfaction.​


Meat Plants

Shamrock Foods has two meat processing facilities, located in Phoenix, Arizona and Denver, Colorado. With its own meat processing operation, Shamrock Foods is dedicated to cutting and processing that exceeds your standards and ours.

Service and Quality

Shamrock Foods employs only highly trained and skilled professional meat cutters and packers at our USDA cutting facility. We don’t begin cutting until we get your order, because that’s the way to ensure freshness and quality. We also offer customized aging programs, hand selection, standard and custom pack, and Cryovac* packaging. A strict HACCP program and on-site laboratory are your assurance of the safety and integrity of our protein products.

COP Specialists

Several COP specialists and chefs train our sales representatives in all aspects and varieties of meat so that they can support you in market trends and new products. Other responsibilities include wait staff training, a valuable resource in today’s competitive market, and plant tours of our cutting facility. The specialists’ main goal, however, is to work with your sales representative to see that you get the right product for your needs.
