Southland Rib Eye Steak has been rated the best in the world
The beef, which was selected from the Alliance Group’s Pukeuri plant in Oamaru and kept in a vacuum bag for up to 55 days, was one of six winners in the global competition.
Shane Kingston, general manager of sales and marketing at Alliance Group, said the awards recognize “the dedication and hard work our farmers put in day in and day out to raise the best grass-fed red meat in the world.”
The rib-eye steak, priced at about $25 per 500g, has “unprecedented” levels of tenderness and a “robust, tangy, buttery and creamy flavour, giving it a very satisfying savory presence”, Kingston said.
