These days, many people have an appetite for healthy and sustainable lean protein options. Pre fills this need by providing customers with non-GMO grass-fed beef. The company prioritizes humane treatment for the animals it sources from farms in New Zealand and Australia. The country-neutral team works hard to deliver delicious products to health-conscious customers. With Pre’s easy-to-follow recipes, couples can whip up a fantastic dish in no time. Now all you need to bring is the candles and the wine.
Over the last decade, health and wellness have become pillars in modern-day lifestyles. More people have made an active pursuit to improve their eating habits and daily nutrition intake. A report by Sanford Health states that 53% of millennials value health as an essential quality in their lives.
Young adults in the millennial and the Gen Z generations often consider healthy eating a lifestyle choice and not just a part of a diet plan. They modify their meals to incorporate nutrition in various ways, whether through a morning turmeric shot or a meatless Monday recipe. So it’s a no-brainer that couples would want to enjoy healthy, delicious meals with their loved ones as well.
When planning the perfect date-night dinner, impressing your date with a delicious eating experience is key. But if going to a steakhouse doesn’t fit your dietary preferences, you can opt for a healthier alternative at home.
Pre provides couples, families, and singles with savory, grass-fed beef for an intimate at-home dinner experience. Pre sets out to supply its consumers with quality beef products sourced from sustainable farms. Its recipes are easy to follow and can help amateur cooks bring the fine-dining atmosphere home.
“We offer the opportunity to bring [restaurant] experiences to homes, whether you’re a new cook or a trained chef,” said Nicole Schumacher, Pre Chief Marketing Officer.
The company seeks to meet the demand for healthy, ethical protein options. Many people have reduced their red meat intake because of health reasons and the unethical practices linked to the meat industry. The company seeks to teach people about the nutrients packed in grass-fed beef and make the meat industry more transparent in its delivery processes.
“If you are going to limit the amount of red meat you eat, we believe you should eat the best. Our focus is on educating the consumer as well as providing them with a delicious eating experience,” said Nicole.
Created To Spotlight Ethical Practices in the Meat Industry
Pre works to deliver premium, sustainable meat products that satisfy customers and lead as an industry example. Nicole said Pre is committed to farming in the way nature intended.
Nature came with the blueprint, but factory-scale farming threw those ethical practices to the side. The need for animal welfare was the inspiration behind Pre.
“We can be thoughtful in how we curate animals, make sure their health is taken care of, and that they have the ability to roam and eat fresh grass year-round,” said Nicole.
Sourced from New Zealand and Australia, Pre works with small country farmers to produce non-GMO offerings. Nicole said the company follows a strict curation process where each farmer must obtain a GMO verified certification and meet key humanitarian practices. The Pre team believes in consistency and ensures that its sourcing is sustainable across the board.
According to Pre’s values, the humane treatment of animals is nonnegotiable. Pre practices the five freedoms of animal welfare to ensure the best possible care for its cattle. Its desire to care for its animals’ physical and mental well-being separates the company from others in the meat industry.
“The saying you are what you eat is similar to the beef — happy cows make delicious steaks because they are enjoying lush lean grass and on pasture year-round,” said Nicole.
Delivering Healthy, Nutritious Products to Consumers
Pre makes cooking healthier beef dishes more accessible for consumers. Because of Pre’s transparent practices, customers don’t have to worry about what’s going into their bodies. The company educates people about nutritious red meat options in an effort to help relieve their health concerns.
“We believe there is an opportunity to get the nutrient-dense vitamins consumers are looking for — iron, vitamin B, omega-3s — all of those are more nutrient-dense in grass-fed beef than is conventional beef and meat alternatives,” said Nicole.
Pre’s pasture-raised beef comes with many health benefits. Its grass-fed beef is lower in calories and fat than typical grain-fed cattle beef. Grass-fed beef also has higher vitamin content and Omega-3 fatty acids. Pre prides itself on offering Certified Paleo, Keto, Non-GMO Project Verified, Whole30 approved, and Halal Compliant products.
As for where couples can buy Pre products, the company delivers through Amazon Fresh, Instacart, and Peapod across the country as well as the online store where you can subscribe and have your beef delivered on your schedule at eatpre.com. Customers can also find its products in grocery stores and on its website. During 2020 and 2021, Pre expanded into the northeast, west, and southeast regions.
Nicole also said the products are all individually packaged and have a shelf life guaranteed 17 days upon first receiver for fresh and average of 3-6 months for frozen. Couples can choose to order different size cuts to complement their individual tastes.
“If one person likes filet or ribeye, you can buy one of each and mix and match and have everybody enjoy a dinner they would have at a steakhouse,” said Nicole.
Daters Can Bring the Steakhouse Home With Pre Recipes
Pre allows couples to create flavorful, steakhouse recipes at home for less money. By using Pre beef, which is free from antibiotics and growth hormones, daters can elevate their candlelit dining experience and keep it inviting and nutritious. And you don’t have to be a sous chef to create a Pre masterpiece either.
Nicole said packages come with easy-to-understand cooking instructions on the back. The instructions make it easy to prepare because they detail the exact temperature and cooking time for each specific cut.
“We believe if you follow the directions we’ve given you will have a delicious eating experience every time. At the end of the day, if you have a pan and high heat oil and salt, you’ve got a beautiful steak,” said Nicole.
For those looking to impress during the holidays, Pre recommends the Holiday Feast Box. The box includes a center-cut tenderloin, chuck roast, lean ground beef, ribeye steak, and top sirloin, which Nicole said is plentiful enough to last through Valentine’s Day.
On Pre’s website, couples can browse menu ideas and find full recipes to test together in the kitchen. Pre also has flavor profiles specific to restaurants, such as Oscar Style and Steak Diane, and recipes for side dishes. Pre’s recipes are available for download. Nicole said the Pre team seeks to reduce the heavy lifting for customers.
“Going to a steakhouse is not affordable for everybody. By creating these experiences at home, it allows people on a budget to afford and enjoy it,” said Nicole.
Pre plans to expand its reach and flavor catalog in 2022. Nicole said Pre will roll out new ethnic flavors to give customers who use its marinades more options. The company’s focus remains to deliver on consumer feedback and maintain its consistency.
“Consumers like how easy it is. They know they’ll get that same taste and product every time. The most important thing for us is consistency,” said Nicole.
