Golden Island Jerky, a Southern California-based producer of gourmet kettle-cooked beef and flame-grilled pork jerky, announced expanded distribution of its Grilled Barbecue and Korean Barbecue pork jerky at Costco locations in markets including: San Diego, Temecula, and Lake Elsinore Calif., Albuquerque N. M., Las Vegas and Henderson Nev, St. George, Utah and across Colorado and Arizona.

“The positive feedback we’ve received from consumers and retailers is tremendous” said Anna Kan, president of Golden Island Jerky. “Expanding our Costco distribution and bringing our soft and flavorful jerky to consumers in these new markets is a step towards achieving our aggressive growth goals and further establishing Golden Island’s position in the gourmet jerky segment.”

Available at Costco locations in 14.5-ounce, resealable packages, Golden Island’s Korean Barbecue and Grilled Barbecue pork jerky are crafted with all-natural, 100-percent whole cuts of pork, with no preservatives. The first large-scale manufacturer to bring gourmet pork jerky to market, Golden Island offers both kettle-cooked beef and flame-grilled pork jerky in a variety of unique flavors, including Chili Lime and Mandarin Orange.

A third-generation, family owned business, Golden Island’s roots trace back to Taiwan, where family patriarchs developed their proprietary process of creating top-quality beef and pork jerky and experienced success selling meat products in local markets. It’s this same passion for exceptional jerky that drives the company’s current management team, always striving to provide customers with delicious and unique products for a snack experience that is a cut above the rest.

Golden Island products are sold at select Costco locations throughout the United States as well as a number of Central Market locations in Texas.
