This isn’t your gas-station jerky, trust us. Country Archer officially began Jerky production nearly 50 years ago in Costa Mesa, California. Utilizing premium ingredients available through top-tier vendors, Country Archer was able to hand select gourmet cuts of extra lean beef and unique blends of deli spices to create its signature Jerky recipes. Their products contain no preservatives or MSG, which means your customers get the finest quality available when it comes to a healthy snack. New to ASD, Country Archer is among many new vendors in ASD’s first time gourmet section. Hungry? Check them out!
