As one of the world’s most trusted premium meat producers, we process and export over 150,000 tonnes of meat and allied products annually. Beyond our highly sought-after quality grass-fed lamb and beef products, we also produce veal, mutton, goat, leather, hides, protein meals, tallow, wool and blood serums.
New Zealand’s open-air, grass pastures, which enjoy clean rainfall and natural sunlight, lend themselves to producing the most trusted beef and lamb in the world. Our livestock are free of antibiotics and growth-promoting hormone treatments. The result is full-flavoured meat, enriched with essential vitamins Omega-3 fatty acids and Vitamin E and Conjugate Lineloic Acid (CLA).View Brochure
Our free-range, natural beef is 100 percent grass-fed and a source of nutrients to our diets. Our cattle are not grain-fed, free from antibiotics and growth hormones. This makes our beef some of the most natural, healthiest and leanest beef in the world.
Our lamb graze on green, open pastures, with natural grass, hay or silage the feed of choice. The result is tender, nutritious and low-fat New Zealand lamb, which meets the highest international quality standards and is proudly exported to over 80 countries.
A range of our further processed cuts can be produced as portion controlled packs to your exact specifications. Portion controlled beef and lamb steaks, stir fry, diced, mince and schnitzels can be produced in skin pack and thermoform packaging. Packaging can be labelled with the AFFCO brand or your own brand.
