Kickers Foods Inc. has launched its flavoured boneless dry ribs to a very receptive Saskatchewan market. Kelly Crozier, owner of Kickers is pleased with the success of his products. His journey started with the Saskatoon Farmers’ Market and now sells across Saskatchewan, Alberta and Manitoba. Kickers products are unique to other dry ribs in the marketplace. “We start with 95% to100% lean meat. Consumers normally get ribs which have a lot of fat, gristle and are heavily breaded ,” said Kelly.
