Quality assurance systems from the farm to your fork provide a guarantee of excellence and food safety. Pork is the world’s no 1 choice. In most countries with a well developed pork production industry, pork is the most frequently enjoyed meat on the menu. Pork is a white meat with very little fat inside the lean muscle fibers.

It’s easy to trim pork to your preference. Where there is fat on a pork cut, all the fat sits on the outside, making it easy to remove or trim to a thin layer. In this regard it is similar to chicken, where most of the fat is contained in the skin of the chicken. A fairly thin layer of fat (up to 3mm) will provide great taste and juiciness to any pork cut, and can be enjoyed in moderate amounts.

To ensure you use the cuts approved by the Heart and Stroke Foundation, look out for the following cuts in the meat cabinet of your favourite butchery or supermarket.
