Provenance exports high quality New Zealand lamb around the globe
at a competitive price point. We also sell domestically to select clients.
We go to great lengths creating an exceptional product – bio-farmed, ethically raised,
meticulously processed – our lamb is our pride and joy.
There are five reasons Provenance lamb is so different from all others and so much in demand…
It is the combination of all these elements that makes for an exceptional eating experience.
Likewise, freezing* is a proven method for safely storing and transporting without damaging meat tissue integrity. Alternatively, in season, we can ship to you fresh while ageing in transit.
Either way, randomised testing using independent quality assurance ensures we get these processes right. Additionally, colour, texture, omega and pH levels, succulence, nutritional value and other indicators of healthy meat are all monitored.
The end result is lamb of outstanding quality that well meets all food standards and is a joy to cook.
Chefs comment on this meat’s low shrinkage in the pan. High meat to bone ratios on all our cuts give added value. Strict carcass grading and processing protocols ensure remarkable accuracy in weight and size of each cut. In the kitchen this means reduced waste, reduced prep time and consistent cooking.
It all starts in the soil. Our comprehensive ethical farming protocols ensure the natural biology of the soil is replenished without the need for harmful fertilizers.
Living soil grows nourishing forage. Soil comes alive when it has good root systems surrounded with high microbiology feeding plant growth. Using natural inputs, when and where needed, enhances this process. The end result is exceptionally healthy animals.
More than feeding our lambs well, we look after them humanely and with respect. Our lambs are especially selected to thrive in their environment. They are raised and cared for on extensive New Zealand farms, freely ranging across hills and paddocks as they graze. When it comes to transporting and processing, every care is taken to make sure our lambs are stress free.
Our lambs live well because they are fed well and cared for at each stage of their life.
The unique nutritional value of our land and pasture is passed into our lambs. This is measurable. Using Oritain’s patented ‘farm of origin finger print’, the trace element profile of the land can be found in the lamb to identify the supply farm.
