Ultra-Tender® | ABP UK

Guaranteeing consistency and tenderness in beef.


Ultra-Tender® is our patented beef hanging process, which increases the natural breakdown of muscle fibres in each carcass while it hangs and matures prior to de-boning.

The Ultra-Tender® mark signifies the application of a five step process developed and patented by ABP Food Group. Aligned to our patented hanging process, we have created a method of sympathetically chilling the carcass to prevent cold shortening and guarantee absolute tenderness in the beef.

After all five steps of our Ultra-Tender® process have been completed we then move on to cutting and selection. Our online grader ensures that only the finest cuts with just the right amount of fat cover and marbling are packed for maturation.
