Who we are?
HistoryThe project “Carne Angus del Uruguay” was created by the Directiva de la Sociedad de Criadores de Aberdeen Angus en Uruguay, SCAAU (Board of Directors of the Uruguayan Society of Aberdeen Angus Breeders), which started a meat-commission as a response to the interest of many partners, industrialists and cattle breeders.
The company was created taking into account the development of the breed in the main countries that produce and consume meat and after this the “Programa de carne Angus certificada del Uruguay” (Uruguayan Program of Certified Angus Meat) was created as well.
These types of programs are extremely successful worldwide and they aim to add value to the breed by capturing the distinguishing characteristics for the consumers that the breed offers in its final product: tenderness, taste and juiciness among others.
The SCAAU created the Carne Aberdeen Angus del Uruguay S.A. (C.A.A.U.S.A.) (Uruguayan Aberdeen Angus Meat PLC) in order to carry out the project enabling the active involvement of all the partners who wanted to participate, so as to maintain the identity of the breed and the commitment with it.
