Meat and Pork Industry changing the names of your favorite cuts of meat

Did you know iconDid you know the Meat and Pork Industry are changing the names of 350 of your favorite cuts of meat and pork. For example, gone are the days of “pork butt”. Why? Well, for starters, “pork butt” doesn’t come from the butt of a pig, it comes from the shoulder, so it’s misleading. It will now be called “Boston Roast”. The theory behind the change is that the new names will be more appealing and less confusing to the consumer. So, before you go to the store to buy your favorite meat, check to see what it’s called. Or…ask your butcher!

Once the complete list is created, we’ll update this post but we have not seen it yet.
