Red Truck Beef Jerky - A Little About Us

From Humble Beginnings

We'll never forget it - Vic our co-founder was sitting in his truck reading a recently-purchased bag from the largest jerky company in the world. He turned to the back, saw the American Flag featured - and saw "Packaged in the USA."

Vic came to learn that all the large beef jerky companies source their meat predominately from China, and South America. 

Feeling like those companies were abusing our American Flag to boost sales, Vic teamed up with Richard to create Red Truck - a small, family owned business that sustainably sources premium cuts of whole-muscle beef shoulder, right here in the USA. The end result is the most tender and lean jerky on the market.

Since 2014, we've linked up to the #1 spice-company in the world, McCormick, to offer customers new and better options for their snacking needs.
