  • Traceable all the way back to the farm, thanks to world-class quality systems including state-of-the-art identification.
  • Naturally mild in flavor, thanks to pasture-raised animals from carefully chosen breeds that are younger and leaner without compromising eye muscle size.

In keeping with the latest guidelines from USDA, American diners are looking for lean, sustainable proteins and alternatives to the menu standards.

For health-conscious diners or your healthy menu development, here are the lamb highlights:

  • Lamb is one of the best sources of well absorbed iron (otherwise known as heme-iron) and zinc, more effective than the iron and zinc found in plant-based foods.
  • Not only is Australian lamb lean (when trimmed of visible fat), because it is
  • pasture raised, it is a valuable source of Omega 3 fatty acids, the same 'healthy’ fat found in fish.
