Here in little old New Zealand, we breed world class lamb without even trying. It’s in our DNA and always has been. So, what happens when you throw some of the world’s best lamb, a few daring farmers and a mountain range together? Something new. Something uniquely New Zealand.
Make no mis-steak, we’re serious about sustainability and our suppliers are too! We’d like you to meat Taupo Beef, a beef supplier who are changing the game when it comes to sustainable farming.
