​New Zealand pasture-fed beef

In New Zealand, about half of the national land is used for livestock and dairy ​industries. Soil contamination level is kept ​at the lowest in the world as there are little heavy industries, and the government is positively guiding management and supervision of such environment. ​Eating the pasture which grows under this blessed environment, the ​pasture-fed cattle ​which grow up freely by full pasturage is also attracting the interest ​with highly healthy-oriented countries such as United States and Europe. Not to mention it is delicious, various nutritive values are also abundant. Our company supplies this delicious healthy ​pasture-fed beef in cooperation with the local business partner who has cultivated for years.
