You don’t have to compromise on nutrition for flavour. Australian Lamb and Beef has plenty of benefits for the entire family.

Natural nourishment

Naturally raised, in harmony with the environment, Australian Lamb and Beef is produced to the highest standards of quality and integrity. When it comes to a natural habitat, very few countries are as fortunate as Australia, with animals having access to abundance of clean water, natural food and fresh air. Australian red meat is tasty and tender with consistent texture, because it is from the healthiest and most well-cared-for livestock on Earth.

Health benefits

Australian Lamb and Beef bring both flavour and nutrition to the table and is a perfect fit for an active lifestyle. Being a popular choice on menus all over the Middle East, red meat is a natural source of protein, iron and zinc. Protein-rich foods provide a satisfying meal for those trying to achieve and maintain a healthy weight. Apart from protein, iron is important for the overall health and wellbeing of the human body. Iron-rich foods are recommended from six months of age for good growth and development.

Variety in every meal

Having red meat three to four times a week makes it easier to meet your daily nutrition needs. Nick Meara, regional manager for Meat & Livestock Australia (MENA) said: “It is important to maintain a balanced diet, and with Australian Lamb and Beef you have a variety of cut choices that offer a versatile diet with numerous meal options.”

Depending on the cut, Australian Lamb and Beef can be prepared in many ways – grilling, broiling, roasting, pan-frying, slow cooking and braising, to name a few.

Home-cooked meals made easy for the family

The Arab world’s first Master Chef Tarek Ibrahim says his favourite meal is lamb with roasted vegetables and sweet potatoes. “I love how easy it is to cook up a healthy meal for the entire family with Aussie lamb. Just rub a mix of garlic, salt, pepper, mint leaves and olive oil on a 2 kg lamb leg and place it in a dish with cut veggies and sweet potatoes. Put it in the oven to roast for two hours and that’s it. Simple and done in a matter of just a few steps.”

Fresh and guaranteed halal in the Middle East

Australian Lamb and Beef in Middle Eastern supermarket shelves is still as fresh as the day it was packed. This is because the Australian meat industry implements world leading hygienic practices and employs the latest technologies in processing and packing to deliver wholesome, safe food to Middle East markets. All red meat processed for export from Australia is produced under government supervision to strict guidelines which are monitored throughout the entire supply chain.

Australia has one of the strictest halal programmes in the world. Local Islamic organisations work with the Australian government to implement best practices of production and slaughter standards according to halal techniques.
