ALAMEDA, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 9, 2015) - Niman Ranch, leader in sustainable agriculture and humane livestock practices, has expanded its line of prepared specialty meats with three deli slicing hams: Applewood Smoked Uncured Ham, Smoked Uncured Honey Ham and Smoked Uncured Black Forest Ham.

Consumers can rest assured knowing that Niman Ranch ham is produced from hogs raised by a community of small, independent family hog farmers who adhere to some of the strictest animal welfare protocols in the industry, including:

  • No antibiotics -- EVER
  • No gestation or farrowing crates
  • Raised on pasture or deeply bedded pens
  • Spend their entire lives with their litter mates and natural social groups
  • Never fed animal by-products

"Consumers are looking for meat options they can feel good about eating and serving their families," says Jeff Tripician, chief marketing and sales officer. "Niman Ranch not only delivers on taste but also the commitment to producing products which share their values and beliefs."

The deli hams provide deli buyers with an opportunity to provide their customers with a deli offering that meets consumer demand for higher quality meat with no artificial ingredients or preservatives. Offered as half hams, a reduced size provides delis with reduce waste and shrink.

  • Applewood Smoked Uncured Ham: slow smoked over real applewood and seasoned with the right touch of salt and sugar to enhance the mild and slightly sweet smoke of the wood.
  • Smoked Uncured Honey Ham: the perfect balance between sweet and smoky flavors. Honey adds a touch of sweetness to the ham which is slow smoked over real applewood.
  • Smoked Uncured Black Forest Ham: seasoned with sugar and spices then slow smoked over real hardwood for a light smoke flavor and a signature dark exterior.

The new Niman Ranch deli slicing hams join the already available beef deli items:
