SlantShack Jerky

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.
