    Summary

    In this episode we talked with John Brewer, the VP of Sales & Marketing at Excalibur Seasoning, about Excalibur Seasoning’s SQF Level 3 certification, organic, and food safety certifications

    Does Excalibur Seasoning offer a Private Label Seasoning Program?
    Yes. It’s a great option for independent butcher shops, but also available and cost efficient for anyone out there with a seasoning product that they want to sell or distribute as their own private seasoning line.

    What is the minimum for private label seasoning shakers or sauces?
    No minimums if it is a stock Excalibur blend. If it is a custom blend, then it is 100lb for dry seasoning, or 150 gallons for sauces.

    Do I need to provide my own label design or can Excalibur help with the label design?
    Either is possible. If you have an existing design, Excalibur work with you to make it appropriate to fit on their product sizes, or Excalibur can help design the graphics on the whole label.

    What kind of seasoning can be private labeled?
    Any seasoning. Either an existing Excalibur blend can have the name changed and private labeled, or if you have a custom blend Excalibur can match it and re-produce it for you as a private label.

    If I do a custom blend, will Excalibur Seasoning or Walton’s share my recipe with anyone?
    Absolutely not. If you use a custom blend and give Excalibur/Walton’s the formulation, we will not share, distribute, or sell it to anyone else.

    Why would I want to use a private labeled seasoning?
    The local movement right now is very strong and not going away, and if you are a small business and you can put your name on a seasoning instead of selling or offering larger brand name seasonings, you are more likely to have customers come back and keep ordering more from you since it is a local brand they can identify with.

    What size of containers do private label seasoning come in?
    There are 7 options for sizes of containers. An 8oz shaker bottle, Small Institutional, or Large Institutional for dry seasonings, and then 12oz bottle, 2 liter “tip & pour”, 1/2 gallon round, or 1 gallon round for sauces and liquids.

    Where do I start if I want to get my own seasoning private labeled?
    Email Walton’s at cs@waltonsinc.com or call us at 800-835-2832. We will assign a customer service representative or salesmen to your account and help walk you through the process.

  • Squid and Octopus Weekly Blog Post - Octopus and Squid, Vacuum Packing

    Find out what's going on at Walton's and Meatgistics this week. We will have a loose schedule for soon to be released videos, what we are working on long-term and maybe a few quick tips and tricks that are on our mind!

    What Videos are being released soon?

    Depending on what you see as soon we will have the almost complete first round of Meatgistics University Classes released. We have broken everything down into these categories; Meat Processing Equipment, Seasoning and Additives, Fresh Sausage, Cured Sausage, Jerky, Sausage Casings, Deli Meats, Smoked Meats, Cured Whole Muscle Meats, and Specialty Sausages. Each of these topics will have multiple entry-level classes covering topics like the type of casing to use, equipment needed and a basic processing class where appropriate.

    What Projects are we looking ahead at?

    We are going to be doing two new Will it BBQ’s, hopefully, this week where we try BBQ’ing Squid and Octopus! The squid was a suggestion by Bob Zambutto through Walton’s Inc Facebook account! I had been wanting to do both of these for a while and when I went to our local Asian Grocery Store (Tai Binh for anyone local to Wichita, KS) and they had lots of options for both, they have almost anything and I got a few more weird ideas while I was there! Anyway, I picked up some baby octopus and a full size one, some small squid and two large ones as well. I am excited and nervous to see how this goes if nothing else it should be fun to watch!

    What’s on our Mind?

    Did you know that you shouldn’t vacuum pack Mushrooms or Garlic? I was reading a Vacmaster VP120 instruction manual the other day and I saw an interesting note that said not to vacuum pack Garlic or Mushrooms! I had no idea that you shouldn’t do this so I thought I would share that with meatgistics readers to let you know not to do it as well. Apparently, they both are prone to bacteria that will continue to grow in oxygen-free environments. I was hoping it was something more impressive than that but it is good information to have.

    New Products

    22" X 24" Collagen Sheets This are typically used for larger whole muscle cuts of meat, like when you are making prosciutto, capocollo, or other dried hams. This is an item that we have had lots of requests for over the years so we were happy to finally find a reliable and reputable source for it.

    @jonathon
    Thanks for the response!

    I think a video on processed celery would be incredible. The only place I have been able to find celery powder as a cure was from “The Sausage Maker”, they have a Facebook page. It was expensive, designed only for sausages, and wasn’t packaged well.

    As for the tackiness, good idea with the cornstarch! There are a bunch of big brands with zero additives that were able to achieve the soft texture with no tackiness, so I’m thinking it has to be in the processing. I read an article where someone at KRAVE mentioned a couple details about how they process their jerky. He said they first inject the meat, then cook the whole pieces, then slice, then marinate, then dry. I have messed around with the idea behind this process a lot. Injecting with brine, sous-viding at a variety of temperatures and times, slicing, marinating, and drying. Decent results, but to be honest the high sugar method you introduced to me has seemed to have better results.

    Anyway, I will keep trying to figure this out and will definitely keep you guys posted if I make any headway. In the meantime, if there is anything else you think might be worth testing, please let me know! It would be great to try and perfect this process together.

    @bob-s-meatgistics I moved one of my first pork butts into the oven and my whole house smelled like smoke. My wife did not stop complaining for a week until the smell was gone from both the house and the oven. I finish all my cooks outside. If you wrap it to speed up the cook you may want to unwrap it for the last hour to put the bark back on it.
