Australian grass-fed beef showcased in top Manila restaurants

A culinary experience awaits diners all over Metro Manila as more than 35 top restaurants participate in the first ever-Australian grass-fed beef promotion. Featuring tailored menus, each restaurant will showcase the unique taste of Australian grass-fed beef, which has been raised exclusively on pasture.

Diners can select from various dishes using the customised menus and in doing so, they get a chance to win Php 5,000 dining privileges or round-trip tickets for 2 to Australia via Qantas Airways. The promotion is jointly presented by the Australian Trade Commission (Austrade), Meat and Livestock Australia (MLA) and the State of Victoria, and will run from 25 July to 23 August 2015.

Anthony Weymouth, Austrade’s Senior Trade Commissioner, noted “There is a growing demand for quality beef in the Philippines, and this promotion reiterates the fact that Australia is in the best position to provide this, as Australia produces premium quality beef that suits the Filipino taste and budget”.

Paul Perez, MLA Country Manager, also believes “The promotion reinforces Australia’s position as the best place to raise beef cattle as its climate and environment provides the perfect growing conditions to raise premium beef.

Australian grass-fed beef is naturally low in fat and cholesterol, while offering a high level of Omega 3 fatty acids known to lower blood pressure and reduce the risk of certain cancers.
