Fresh Beef Patties From Belmont There’s simply nothing more delicious than a fresh burger patty. And with Fresh Beef Patties by Belmont Meats you can revolutionize your burger offering without revamping your kitchen operations. Our line of fresh, superior quality burgers meets the needs of consumers looking for a burger with a tender bite and made “fresh from the kitchen” taste. Our unique pillow pack system means every Fresh Beef Patty stays fresh for 18 days and stays protected until ready to use. The precision portioning and uniform flattening created by our state-of-the-art Burger Forming technology give our burgers a consistent thickness you can depend on every time. The Advanced Belmont Meats’ Burger Forming process never crushes meat fibers. The result is a burger that always has the tender bite, texture and eating quality consumers expect could only come from a hand-made patty.

By staying true to our core competencies of making the best burgers, we reach higher, and we know our foodservice partners achieve greater success, ultimately resulting in a stronger relationship with customers and consumers.
