Kane Beef introduces clipless ground beef

Corpus Christi– Kane Beef introduced an innovative metal-free alternative to traditional ground beef chubs. The plastic clipless ground beef chub option was first introduced by Kane in partnership with Cryovac in December 2017 and has been well-received by grocers across the south. Kane Beef is currently the only packer to produce this product.

Kane’s clipless chub is designed to eliminate the risk of finding the metal clip in ground beef, as well as provide an ease of use with the easy-open tear notch. Additionally, the hazard of cross-contamination that comes with cutting open traditional ground beef packaging becomes a thing of the past.

Food safety was the first priority in product design, Kane said. Although easy to open by hand, the clipless chub is quintuple sealed to reduce any potential leaker issues during a shipping or transfer process. The shelf life of Kane’s clipless chub is 20 days, the same as the traditional ground chub.

Kane’s clipless chub is currently in use by grocery store meat markets throughout Texas but plans to soon expand the offer to all customers. The product’s trial period within the company’s home state has received favorable reviews from meat market managers, praising the cleanliness, food safety innovation and convenience compared to traditional ground beef chubs.


For nearly 70 years, Kane Beef has served as the primary beef processor for cattle ranchers in South Texas. Since its beginnings in 1949, Kane Beef has expanded from a local meat counter to a nationally recognized supplier of dependable beef products with key accounts in retail and foodservice.
