Roaring Forties Premium Lamb Ribs
Frozen, approx 1-1.2kg per slab
A tender and flavoursome meat, representing some of the finest lamb from Australia. Often said to be the closest thing to the highly prized ‘L’AGNEAU DE PRÉ-SALÉ’ from Normandy, France.
All Roaring Forties lambs are hand-selected and graded against 9 separate, stringent criteria – one of most rigorous grading schemes for lamb in the world, and results in consistency and quality like no other.
The “Roaring Forties” are named after the ferocious winds that circle the southern hemisphere at the 40th degrees of latitude.
Distant oceanic storms and swells that push up from Antarctica give rise to regular and strong westerly winds.
Blowing over thousands of kilometres of southern ocean, these famous trade winds carry the cleanest air in the world – as measured by the CSIRO monitoring station at Cape Grim.
With the climate tempered by the regular climate that the winds bring, the fertile lands of Southern Victoria and Tasmania provide green grass – year round.
It is one of the most ideal regions in the world to grow premium lamb.
