With good rainfall and fertile soils, New Zealand’s farm land is able to sustain production almost all year round.
New Zealand has an almost exclusively free-range grass feed production system producing tender, appetizing and healthy products. Pasture fed and naturally raised meat has a unique, internationally sought after flavour.
The New Zealand Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) is responsible for New Zealand’s food related legislation. Around 200,000 Export Certificates are issued annually for animal products. Meat processors utilise the traceability system with strict documentation and packaging that includes barcoding and tamper-proof closures. Individual shipments can be tracked back to the farm they came from.
New Zealand’s strict biosecurity controls, quality control processes, food safety, and geographic location as an island nation have resulted in an animal disease-free status, recognised by the World Organisation for Animal Health.
The NZ National Animal Identification and Traceability (NAIT) project is a compulsory electronic system, which requires all bovine to be individually tagged with electronic ear tags and Prime Range operates within these guidelines.
Our products are highly regarded throughout the world and we are experiencing an increasing demand for them.
