Determined to snack better and more deliciously, Josh Kace ’07SEAS gathered his ’07CC and ’07SEAS friends around his New York City apartment and set out to create the jerky of their dreams. Under that slanted-roof, they came up with a list of demands: 100% Grass-Fed Beef, organic spices, and non-GMO, preservative-free marinades. The crew feverishly experimented, crafting award-worthy, unique flavor profiles without the high sugar content and questionable MSG many brands relied on, and developing a revolutionary, against-the-grain slice that yielded tender, steak-like bites.
Today, SlantShack is recognized as a Certified B Corporation for its commitment to quality and good business practices as they maintain to do food right–only partnering with family farms who are committed providing 100% grass-fed, free-range, humanely and sustainably raised beef without the use of hormones or anti-biotics.
SlantShack turns out the tastiest and healthiest jerky imaginable and is available in Whole Foods, Fairway, airports and other natural retailers.
