Straight from Kansas, the Corn Belt of the USA and the heart of American BBQ culture comes our USA Beef. A special diet with the best corn creates a nice marbling and soft, tender flavour of the meat.

For our own brand, ‘1788‘, we exclusively use livestock from New South Wales, a part of Australia renowned for its unspoiled nature and expansive green plains. Here, the Angus beef cattle can graze to their heart’s content for 26 months and are in turn fed grain for 120 days. This special diet ensures that their meat is ‘marbled,’ which contributes to its superior tenderness and richness of taste.
A selection of the cattle is not 120 but even 200 days grain fed fattened. This top line – under the name 1788 Platinum – is extra special because only the most tasteful breed, pure Black Angus , is used.
Under the name Charrua we offer you the unique combination of South American quality and the taste experience of grain fed beef.
Cattle in Uruguay live in a true paradise. The fertile soils, wide open green spaces, a multitude of rivers and streams and a temperate climate provide ideal conditions to guarantee animal welfare.
During the final stage of at least 120 days the cattle are fed a specially balanced diet mainly composed of grain. This results in meat which is fine, lightly marbled and pure in taste. In addition to meat from Hereford cattle, it is also possible to deliver Angus beef from Uruguay.
Evita’s Choice puts the symbol of Argentina on your plate; high quality grain-fed beef.
Evita’s Choice mainly supplies meat from the Braford, Brangus, Hereford and Angus breeds. The cattle live 20 to 26 months in total freedom on the extensive pampa. Gauchos keep an eye on them. After living on the pampa, the cattle go to spaciously set up feedlots, where they receive a special diet with grain as the main ingredient, resulting in balanced extra “intra-muscular” fat providing extra flavour.
