Every year Australian Pork runs a competition titled ‘Steak your Claim’ with the aim of finding the nation’s best pork steak. Assessed by a panel of qualified chefs assessments are made of competitors top pork loin steaks against a range of criteria that includes visual appeal, marbling and aroma as well as tenderness juiciness and flavour when cooked.
This year saw Queensland’s very own Borrowdale Free Range Pork take out the top honour as achieving an impressive balance of marks across all categories and an excellent finished product when cooked. Borrowdale Pork comes from a family of free range farming pioneers near Goondiwindi on Queensland’s fertile Darling Downs, their mission as a business is to help customers rediscover the real and authentic taste of Aussie pork and with accolades such as this one we think they’ve just about nailed it.
At Zone Fresh we’re always on the look-out for the best meat brands in the business and we are proud to count Borrowdale as our primary pork supplier. Our team of Butchers and apprentices are thoroughly excited to celebrate Borrowdale’s big win as the producer of Australia’s best pork steak in 2018, and would like to congratulate them on their current success and wish them many more in the future.
As a fresh food retailer there is nothing quite like being able to serve our customers with confidence, knowing that our everyday customers are enjoying the best pork on offer.
