This month Platinum Provisions and Johnson Emu Inc. entered into a marketing agreement allowing Platinum to distribute Johnson's Award winning Emu nationally through Platinum's wholesale and retail network."Platinum's presentation of Johnson's Emu at the Louisiana Restaurant Association's 47th Louisiana Foodservice Expo in New Orleans, is an example of a great fit between our two companies," said Mark Shideler, Vice President of The Platinum Beef and Seafood Company. "Johnson Emu's commitment to quality, from select breeding, and feed practices through to on-site processing, is right in-line with the Platinum criteria used to select all our vendors. It's a philosophy of providing only the finest products available."Johnson Emu gains the market exposure and distribution expertise which has allowed Platinum Provisions to distribute other award winning products such as SayersBrook Bison, to the finest "white cloth" restaurants nationwide as well as to discriminating households via Platinum's catalog and website operations."Emu, like Bison, is a heart healthy red meat, lower in fat and cholesterol than skinned chicken and higher in protein than beef," said Johnny Johnson, President of Johnson Emu, "However, the great thing about both products is, they taste delicious."Platinum Provisions is the wholesale division of The Platinum Beef & Seafood Company. In addition to Emu and Bison, Platinum provides Ostrich, Elk, Free-Range Organic Chicken and Turkey, and Drug-Free Pork as well as other exotic fowls from Pheasant to Squab. Platinum also markets an ever expanding line of center-of-the-plate items, as well as fine appetizers and desserts representing "the best of the best," from Caviar to Cheesecake.For further information contact: The Platinum Beef and Seafood Company (573) 358-8850CONTACT: Art Dupree, President of The Platinum Beef and Seafood, 573-358-8850, fax, 573-358-8853, or email,
