Our entire product is slaughtered and prepared under stringent hygiene regulations according to the exacting standards laid down by local health and quarantine authorities.

In Australia this means the offal is inspected by government officers before and after the washing and trimming process, and the entire product is packed and temperature controlled within two hours of the animal’s slaughter.
