Margaret River Wagyu cattle are produced adhering to a strict feeding and management regime. The result is an exceptional high quality product tailored to meet the needs of our customers. This control of the production process from paddock to plate gives customers assurance of product integrity.
Margaret River Premium Meats adopt an extensive free range farm management practice with natural mating as well as an artificial insemination (AI) program to produce pure bred Wagyu cattle. Cows graze on natural pastures in a completely free range, stress free environment which in turn leads to optimum performance.
The company contracts Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service (AQIS) approved export registered processors to process the livestock to its packing specification. All processing is carried out under the supervision of AQIS veterinary inspectors. It is also monitored by quality assurance staff from MRPME to ensure the product is processed and packed to the specification required.
All products are Halal slaughtered.
Every Wagyu beef carcase undergoes a chiller assessment process to determine the level of marbling, known as marble score, the meat colour, fat colour and eye muscle area. This assessment is carried out by an Ausmeat certified grader. Ausmeat is the body responsible for setting and maintaining the standards of the chiller assessment program for the Australian meat industry.
