1788 awarded with Black Angus status

Premium Australian brand ‘1788’ beef has received an upgrade in status.

As of June 2019, all beef under the 1788 Australian Grain Fed Beef brand is recognized with the verified Black Angus Beef certification by the Angus Society of Australia.

1788 is the brand under which Jan Zandbergen markets Australian grain-fed beef to the EU foodservice industry.

In a statement, the brand said: “‘1788 Beefis always looking to improve the products for its clients. Offering them the best consistent quality meat to distinguish itself from other suppliers.  For ‘1788’ Jan Zandbergen chose to use only one breed for even more consistency. The choice for Black Angus was made because this breed has the best taste and its beef remains increasingly popular.”

The name of the brand refers to the year 1788, in which Captain Arthur Philip set foot ashore in New South Wales, Australia. On his fleet he brought 6 cows and a bull. This was the start of livestock keeping  ‘Down Under’.

1788 Beef won a Gold Medal in the 2015 World Steak Challenge. This year the event takes place in Dublin at Fire Restaurant and Lounge. The competition has already received a record number of entries from 23 different countries. For more information on the World Steak Challenge, log onto www.worldsteakchallenge.com​.
