At Macelleria we have gone to great pains to seek out the very best suppliers of produce we could find. It all starts with the best quality beef from the pristine Tasmanian region.
ustralia has rediscovered the value of food provenance. This has resulted in increased customer demand for premium products that can be traced to their source, that are sustainable and that show integrity and consistency.
These expectations are driving the re-evaluation of the social and environmental relationships surrounding food.
Our meats are raised on natural diets and encouraged to grow slowly. None of our animals are raised in crowded conditions – it is important to us that their lives are as stress free and decent as possible.
Cape Grim Beef
C ape Grim is on the north-western most tip of the Tasmanian mainland and hosts the world’s most pure air. Tasmania is renowned for its pristine wilderness but you might not know it’s home to the purest air on earth. In the North-Western corner of Tasmania 40° 41′ South, those world-famous Roaring Forties whip away any trace of pollution as they blow across the Southern Ocean. Combined with low levels of development and its sheer distance from other land landmasses, Cape Grim’s air quality is pretty unique – and the local baseline air pollution station readings prove it.
As the Bureau of Meteorology and CSIRO staff whom monitor the station can tell you, air quality comes down to carbon particles and the particle count at Cape Grim is unbelievably low. While the average cubic centimetre of air contains 5000 to 500,000 particles, Cape Grim boasts a meagre 10 to 600.
The station is one of 25 in the world and the only one in Australia. Samples of the atmosphere from Cape Grim were first taken over 20 years ago and are sent all over the globe for scientific use as the benchmark for air quality.
More information about the Cape Grim Baseline Air Pollution Station can be found at the following websites for the CSIRO and the Bureau of Meteorology.

Tajima Wagyu Beef
W agyu Beef was introduced into Australia in 1991. Wagyu is described as the highest quality beef in the world, and is renowned for its distinctive marbling and flavour. Wagyu beef also contains a higher percentage of Omega 3 and Omega 6, and its incr eased marbling enhances the ratio of healthier mono-saturated fats compared to regular beef. Tajima Cross bred Wagyu beef was launched by Andrews Meat Industries in 2007. The brand has flourished both domestically and internationally and is now offered to restaurants across the country and is seen on high end restaurant and hotel menus in over 15 different countries.
Tajima is the most famous of all the Wagyu bloodlines, originating from the Hyogo prefecture in Japan. They are generally smaller framed with slower growth rate but produce excellent meat eating quality with a large eye muscle and superior marbling. They are thought to be ideal for the production of F1 or Crossbred cattle.
