Best in Australia – pork at its finest


Best in Australia – pork at its finest

The country’s best pork steak has been named in the annual Steak your Claim competition. The best in Australia for 2018 is Borrowdale Free Range Pork.

The annual competition, run by industry body, Australian Pork Limited (APL), aims to discover the nation’s best pork steak.

This year the pork loin steaks were expertly assessed in ‘blind’ judging according to very specific criteria. The winner was judged on colour, visual appeal, marbling of the raw product, aroma, flavour, juiciness and texture.

“The fact that Borrowdale Pork won the 2018 Steak Your Claim competition proves the effectiveness of using the highest standards of ethical production. The result is the superior flavour and tenderness of pork that is all perfectly natural,” says Paul da Silva, Marketing Manager, Borrowdale Free Range Pork.

“Borrowdale’s winning entry was just part of our regular weekly production. It’s great that it reflects the brand’s mission for everyday consumers to rediscover the real taste of pork. Borrowdale customers are all enjoying the best pork on offer,” he goes on to say.

“Australians’ appetite for pork continues to grow, and our farmers are continually looking to improve their already high-quality product,” says APL General Manager of Marketing, Peter Haydon. “This competition seeks to find a really special product, and producers have responded by looking at different breeds and feeds to deliver a stunning pork steak,” he says.

This best in Australia Borrowdale Pork comes from a family of free-range pig farming pioneers based in Goondiwindi, on Queensland’s fertile darling downs. Their trademark low-stress animal husbandry practices make Borrowdale such succulent, tender and all-natural pork.
