About Argyle Prestige Meats
Argyle operates three wholly owned and integrated businesses. The business is run by Lachlan and Bryce Graham with the support of an experienced management team. Argyle Pastoral operates a large scale mixed farming enterprise on the fertile South West Slopes of New South Wales, with a historic Angus stud and commercial breeding and fattening herd. The cattle run on the Argyle Pastoral property are from one of the oldest genetic lines of Angus in Australia. The high standard approach that the Graham family have taken to producing cattle and sheep has resulted in the numerous awards including:
(i) overall excellence in Marbling for Certified Australian Angus Beef;
(ii) Australian Farmer of the year 2013; and
(iii) Australian Food Industry Gold Medal 2016.
Argyle Processing, located in Nowra on the South Coast of New South Wales, secures the highest industry certifications and utilises the latest packaging technology to provide portioning, packaging, further processing, branding and value-adding for both food service and retailers. The plant processes all red meat products for the domestic market as well as for Argyle export, with access to 160 countries globally, and provides a wide range of packaging solutions. Argyle’s focus on innovation has allowed it to build strong relationships with key customers in Australia and Asia and to support the rapid growth rate of the company. A collaborative innovation strategic partnership (CISP) with Meat and Livestock Australia (MLA) will allow Argyle to be at the forefront of food and consumer trends and launch new products into global markets. Argyle’s products are currently sold in 800+ retail stores in Australia and, via Argyle Export based in Hong Kong, to 1,200+ stores in Asia; Hong Kong, Macao, Singapore, Taiwan, China, Cambodia and Korea. Export demand for its meat products is growing rapidly with expansion into mainland China since March 2017.
Our conservative and sustainable approach over the past 20 years has seen vast improvements in moisture retention, tree plantings, erosion, catchment management, soil structure and pasture improvement. The benefits of the above improvements are clearly evident in our livestock’s performance and hence the quality of our end product.
