Golden Island Introduces Six Inspired New Jerky Flavors

Made in America With Flavors From Around the World

RANCHO CUCAMONGA, CA--(Marketwire - Oct 16, 2012) - Golden Island Jerky Co. (Golden Island), the Southern California-based leading producer of kettle-cooked beef and flame-grilled pork jerky, today announced the launch of six new flavors of jerky, made in America and inspired by flavors from around the world. Golden Island's newest flavors include:

  • Hickory Black Pepper (beef)
  • Chili Lime (beef)
  • Mandarin Orange (beef)
  • Teriyaki (pork)
  • Grilled Barbecue (pork)
  • Korean Barbecue (pork)

Available in three-ounce, resealable packages, each flavor is crafted with all-natural ingredients with no preservatives. The first large-scale manufacturer to bring pork jerky to market, Golden Island offers a variety of kettle-cooked beef and flame-grilled pork jerkies in more than 20 flavors, including Chili Lime and Hickory Black Pepper. The company's Korean Barbecue pork and Mandarin Orange beef jerkies are also gluten free.

"Our unique small-batch cooking process, combined with our authentic, natural ingredients and 100-percent whole cuts of beef and pork, make our jerky the perfect choice for snacking," said Anna Kan, president and CEO of Golden Island. "Our goal is always to use fresh, real ingredients, so when you bite into a piece of Golden Island jerky, the taste you experience is an authentically delicious representation of the flavor on the bag."

A third-generation, family owned business, the company's roots harken back to Taiwan, where the family experienced success selling meat products such as sausage and jerky that were enjoyed by the local community. It's this same passion that drives the company's current management team, constantly striving to bring to market unique and delicious jerky flavors that elevate traditional packaged jerky.

Golden Island products are sold at select Costco locations throughout the United States as well as a number of Central Market locations in Texas. The company's gourmet jerky can also be purchased online. For more information, visit or "Like" them on Facebook.
