Japanese Wagyu Selection
Kumamoto Wagyu, hailing from Japan's Kumamoto Prefecture, represents the epitome of high-quality beef, treasured for its superior flavor, tenderness, and intricate marbling. Bred from the exclusive Kuroge Washu, or Japanese Black cattle, meticulous attention is paid to diet and living conditions to develop the meat's signature traits.
Known for its buttery texture and rich, succulent flavour, Kumamoto Wagyu rivals famed Japanese Wagyu varieties such as Kobe and Matsusaka. Served in gourmet restaurants globally, this luxury beef takes centre stage in a variety of preparations, underlining its culinary versatility and exceptional quality.
Ozaki beef comes from Wagyu cattle exclusively raised on Mr. Muneharu Ozaki's farm in Miyazaki Prefecture. Inspired by his studies of beef production in the USA, Ozaki chose a personal approach over mass production. Seeking beef he'd enjoy daily, he spent over 30 years perfecting his product, leading to the birth of "Ozaki beef."
The cattle's feed, a meticulous blend of 15 ingredients like meadow grass and barley mash, is devoid of preservatives or antibiotics. Unlike most Wagyu slaughtered at 28 months, Ozaki's cattle are aged 28 to 36 months, resulting in meat with a unique texture, rich flavor, and a melt-in-your-mouth quality.
From Japan's Kagoshima Prefecture, Kagoshima Wagyu is a testament to premium beef, renowned for its superior marbling and tenderness. This sought-after Wagyu variant, derived from Kuroge Washu cattle, is known for its rich, buttery flavor, thanks to its high fat content.
