Fresh Ground Beef, Straight from the Source

Cargill’s beef production and fabrication facilities in the United States and Canada allow us to provide ground beef to every part of North America, so that every package you purchase delivers the freshness and great flavor you expect. Explore the many facilities that help bring Cargill ground beef to your table and discover how our employees impact their local communities.

What is an Establishment Number?

An Establishment Number is a unique numeric code required by law that identifies the plant where each package of Cargill ground beef was produced.

How can I find it?

Simply look for a seal similar to the one pictured here on the front of any ground beef package to track the ground beef you purchase back to its plant of origin. If there is no seal, look for "Est." on the package and use the number following those letters.
