Surrounded by the Pacific Ocean, the islands of New Zealand are famed for their world-leading farmers, unspoilt land, and spectacular scenery. Ocean Beef, premium grain fed beef, is the unique product of that exceptional environment; the best grass, the best grains, and fresh sea air.
For the first 18 months, the Angus cattle graze the lush, nutritionally rich pastures of New Zealand. Free-range, they benefit from the temperate year-round climate that makes growing conditions ideal.
At 18 months, steers are hand selected for Ocean Beef using a stringent quality and safety programme ensuring only the best animals are chosen. Ocean Beef, which is located on the shores of the South Island provides them with an idyllic life. They’re fed a GMO-free, high quality grain diet (supplied by neighbouring farms) and enjoy the salt sea air.
Purity is strenuously enforced and safeguarded. No hormone growth promotants or antibiotics are used and the air is dust free. To ensure health and well being while minimising stress, riders on horseback check the steers twice daily.
The animals live in an environment that ensures the highest quality beef. They are kept calm, clean, dry, and above all comfortable. They have a plentiful supply of natural ar tesian drinking water drawn from deep underground, fed by snow that melts on the Southern Alps.
From the farm to the table, Ocean Beef guarantees the highest quality, taste, safety and consistency. The combination of free-range and grain finishing ensures flavour and melt-in-the-mouth texture that results in a superior eating experience every time. In addition, the Ocean Beef story, natural fresh food from a sustainable, healthy land reflects chefs’ awareness of issues including traceability and the environment
