Your guide to Australian beef
Australian beef is one of the most loved cuts of meat made available by the Australian food industry and enjoyed around the world. According to Meat and Livestock Australia, Australia is the world’s third largest exporter of beef and veal.
Over 78 countries received 1.1 million tonnes of Australian meat and veal. Australian Fine Foods, a meat exporter based in Australia, contributed to that total by handling the export of a wide range of Australia’s top butchery products to customers in the Asia Pacific and countries beyond.
As Australia’s premium exporter, Australian Fine Foods not only supplies the best Australian food products for export, they export some of Australia’s (and the world’s!) most popular steak cuts.
