With the support of Neogen genomics' world-leading DNA testing capabilities, Performance Food Group's PathProven food trace technology can trace food products back to the feedlot, ocean, or farm that they came from, allowing the entire production process to be carefully inspected and regulated, ensuring both the quality and origin of these products. This relationship presents a new opportunity for Neogen to help improve efficiency and sustainability within the protein supply chain.

"Neogen is incredibly proud to partner with Performance Food Group and further our commitment to fueling a brighter future for food security," said Tom Schultz, Senior Director of USAC Livestock Production at Neogen. "Through this relationship, Performance Food Group will implement Neogen's portfolio, ranging from food security to discovery, within its protein production process. This deeper integration of genomics technology within sourcing programs will help drive greater protein efficiencies."

"At Performance Food Group, we believe in transparency, which is why we have a verifiable program utilizing DNA. Our flagship beef program, Braveheart Black Angus Beef, redefines beef programs with our rigid PathProven Program and DNA testing, which verifies Angus genetics," said Glenn Strickholm, President of Protein Brands at Performance Food Group. "This truly separates our program from other certified beef programs, and Neogen is a big part of that difference. We are so excited about this partnership, and we look forward to seeing how it evolves in the future."
