Thomas Foods International
So much more than top-quality, organic Australian lamb. The company’s expert farming and production methods offer you complete peace of mind too
Founded in 1988, Thomas Foods – our Australian supplier of organic lamb – can be trusted to provide high-class produce every single time. That’s because over the decades, the family-owned company has learned a thing or two about being the best in the business: like how to build a production network so strong it never breaks down but always delivers. And why training staff to be acutely aware that using low-stress handling methods to raise livestock is absolutely key for producing lamb with superior taste and texture. These are just a couple of examples that help to illustrate Thomas Foods’ position as an industry leader. Let’s look at some others…
- Like all our meat producers, Thomas Foods places animal welfare and environmental protection at the top of its agenda. All the company’s suppliers raise livestock the natural way – without any added hormones – and leave the lambs free to roam across and graze from clean and fertile land.
- Moreover, the company is committed to reducing its carbon footprint, and participated in the Australian Government’s Climate Change Adaptation Initiative.
- Thomas Foods was the first major lamb processor to use Meat Standards Australia grading technology. This guarantees premium quality – meat graded this way has to come from livestock processed and butchered in facilities with the highest hygiene standards, and be the best in terms of colour, marbling and tenderness.
- A family feel can be sensed across everything the company does. Not just in the way it seeks to protect land that surrounds the farms, but also via community integration, whether that’s through supporting charities or assisting with local events.
