Beefjerky.com History

In 1995 the domain http://www.beefjerky.com was originally acquired by FreshMade Meat Products, a subsidiary of Orbital Development. Beefjerky.com developed their extraordinary recipe and promotes sales of Final Frontier Jerky. Final Frontier Jerky is a black pepper flavor beef jerky, said to be the "Best I ever ate!" by countless voracious consumers.

Media attention to Beefjerky.com's "Space Program" has helped to establish and expand Internet mindshare of the domain and increase the sales volume of Final Frontier Jerky. Competing for attention head-to-head with the "commercial" space programs of giant corporations like Pepsi-Cola and Pizza Hut, Beefjerky.com has consistently achieved excellent media presence around the world with its low-cost achievements in Space marketing.

Drawing on Orbital Development's extensive contacts and experience in the space industry, Beefjerky.com developed, implemented, and continues with their Space-related marketing program. Working with NASA Marshall Space Flight Center personnel for testing and approvals, Final Frontier Jerky was selected by the astronaut crew and flew aboard the Space Shuttle Atlantis STS-79 flight on September 16th, 1996. A few days later, the shuttle docked at Mir Space station where Final Frontier Jerky was shared by both crews.

On May 20th, 2001 Final Frontier Jerky again rocketed to space, this time aboard a Russian Progress freighter bound for the International Space Station. Upon an ISS flight crewmember's personal request, the beef jerky treat was included in the "personal mass allowance" that each astronaut family is given for each launch opportunity.

On April 25th, 2002 Final Frontier Jerky left Earth for a third time, in the pocket of Mark Shuttleworth's spacesuit. A South African citizen, Mark was the second private astronaut to ever fly to space.

On August 8th, 2007 Final Frontier Jerky flew to orbit for the fourth time aboard STS-118 to the International Space Station.

On 16 November, 2009, All four flavors of Beefjerky.com's beef jerky launched to ISS on STS-129, the Atlantis space shuttle. The flight crew specifically requested Beefjerky.com products for their adventure.
