Meat FAQ’s

Is your meat organic?

No, our products are not certified organic, but we source only from approved abattoirs who ensure certain standards of animal welfare.

We also do not specify our meat as “grass-fed” because there is no uniform country-wide standard or audit currently applied to meat designated as “grass-fed” in South Africa. Various farms and companies have their own protocols, but these vary, and supply is often limited.

In order to guarantee a regular supply of top quality beef and lamb, we procure beef from top approved abattoirs and will only use top grade beef and lamb.

Is your meat Halaal?

No. Although much of our meat is slaughtered in Halaal approved abattoirs our facility is not approved.

Why are there no Venison products on offer?

At the moment, we have decided to concentrate on what we do best – beef, pork, specialised lamb and chicken products. We will look to expand our product range in the future.
