Since our start as a butcher shop in 1929, we’ve sought partners that are as committed as we are to bringing the best meat to our customers. This ongoing search connects us to our sources and the meat we sell. We believe our meat and poultry partners are second to none and make it a point to only source Heinen’s beef and pork from ranchers who adhere to our strict specifications.

Heinen’s Meat Department

In 1929, Joe Heinen opened the doors of a small butcher shop on the east side of Cleveland. His aim was to provide the community with the highest quality meat and service. Today, we remain committed to these standards.

We partner with ranchers who believe in our values and specifications. We are proud of our offerings including locally-sourced beef, ABF Lamb, organic grass-fed beef and organic poultry.

Our full-service meat counters are staffed with expert butchers who offer meal inspiration, preparation tips and custom cuts to fit your needs in addition to ready-to-cook meats and plant-based alternatives.

From easy weeknight dinners to elaborate gatherings, our meat is something we are proud to sell and you will be proud to serve.
