Why Choose Australian Beef?

Australia has been exporting beef for over a century, and now supplies beef to over 120 countries worldwide. In fact, Australia is the largest beef exporter in the world.

Our beef is internationally recognised for being safe, wholesome, natural, tender, juicy and high-quality. Australian livestock are raised in a healthy, natural environment of rich pastures.

We also have a world class feedlot industry, where cattle are raised on grass but finished on grain.


Because the Australian beef industry is focused on exporting, our beef production and packaging is tailored to suit the needs of numerous different customers and cultures.

Whether customers need restaurant-ready beef cuts or retail cuts specific to a particular operation, Australian beef is the way to go.

Enviable Animal Health Status

Australia’s animal health status is one of the highest in the world, and Australian stock are free of many diseases that exist in other parts of the world.

This enviable health status is zealously guarded by the Australian government and meat industry, and numerous programs have been put into place to maintain this superior standing.

Safe & Wholesome products

All Australian export meat packing plants are regulated by the Australian Federal Government through the Department of Agriculture.

International departments of agriculture also ensure the quality of Australian beef produce by carrying out audits via on-plant Australian Federal Government inspectors.


When it comes to animal identification, Australia is a world leader. Australian cattle are linked to a property via an eight digit identification code, which is issued by State

Governments and printed on each rancher’s National Livestock Identification System (NLIS) tags and National Vendor Declaration (NVD) forms.

Every animal is tagged whenever an animal is moved from a property, the NLIS database is updated to provide complete traceability, which allows the health and feeding history of every animal or animal group to be tracked back to the property of birth.

Australian beef is also backed by the most accurate beef grading system in the world.

With all these benefits, why wouldn’t you choose Aussie beef?!
