The Carolina Panthers have signed a three-year sponsorship and licensing agreement with Kayem Foods, making Kayem the official brand of franks and sausages at Bank of America Stadium through 2017.

The NFL stadium’s concession stands will serve Kayem’s beef hot dogs and Italian sausages, products that have no fillers and are MSG- and gluten-free, Kayem said in a statement this week.

Kayem products are also distributed at all Harris Teeter stores for fans hosting their own tailgate parties, the meat maker added.

“Kayem is one of the most established hot dog manufacturers in the country, and we’re pleased to partner with them to offer the best hot dogs and sausages to our fans,” said John Berger, the Panthers’ director of sponsorship sales and service.

Massachusetts-based Kayem Foods was founded in 1909 and says it is the largest meat processor in New England, producing over 100 varieties of hot dogs and 300 varieties of deli meats, sausage and dinner hams.
