DescriptionIn 1947, William Cattaneo Sr., started a beef jerky making business with just $200 and a recipe in mind. He had perfected his ingredients during the 1940’s in the basement of a small butcher shop in downtown San Luis Obispo.

Today, we are celebrating 64 years of making Cattaneo Bros. Beef Jerky & Sausage. After three generations of Cattaneo’s, the Kaney Family now runs the operation and the second generation of this family is taking the reins.

The faces in the factory may have changed, but everything is still done the old fashioned and all-natural way. The same instructions and traditions William Cattaneo, Sr. created are still followed daily with each handmade batch.

New faces have meant great new additions over the years. In the mid-80s new flavors were added like Teriyaki, Mesquite and Extra-Hot. The Kaney’s and Cattaneo’s created the new Turkey Jerky in the 90’s. And with our background in meat processing, the Kaney’s added extensively to the sausage line with the recipe creation of Pork Apple Honey, Caballero, Chorizo and more. All family trade secrets the recipes and attention to quality and detail in the production process are what make Cattaneo Bros. products one-of-a-kind.

Since Cattaneo Bros. was founded in 1947, the company has remained steadfastly committed to American manufacturing and American workers. For quite some time, the meat snack industry has seen a marked trend toward imported product. We have resisted this trend however, because we believe in the ingenuity, enterprising spirit and integrity of the American worker and the American cattle industry.

We are proud to produce all of our gourmet food products in California using only U.S. raisedmeat. We buy only the best meat and ingredients in order to produce a consistent, top-quality product. Real jerky can’t be made by machines. Each piece is hand-cut and marinated in apple cider vinegar with no added sugar then hung to dry for hours in smokehouse ovens.

The Kaney Family has worked hard to keep the production facility up to date with the latest USDA food safety requirements while continuing to maintain traditional production techniques. They believe that it is the family's trade secrets, recipes and attention to detail in the production process that make Cattaneo Bros. products one-of-a-kind.

Today jerky is not just a part of cowboy folklore. It is a nutritious snack for people who are on the go. And with them Cattaneo Bros. products have traveled around the globe providing needed nutrition and a happy reminder of home.

We invite you to taste the tradition!
