The Roast Beef you enjoy is more likely than not cut from either the silverside or topside of a cow. Both of these muscle regions of a beef carcass are above the legs – an area that is very large and hardworking – making the meat you use for a roast beef usually quite lean with fine ribbons of marbling (or intermuscular fat).Buy Sustainable Roast Beef

Picking the right cut for your roast beef can be a daunting task – especially when you're looking for premium taste and tenderness and a roast beef that is healthy for you and the environment, as well as coming from cows that have lived healthy and happy lives!

This is a tough one to get right. Preventative (and often very strong) antibiotics are used as a measure by many farmers and beef producers to make sure their cattle don't contract and spread diseases. While this idea in itself isn't an issue, in practice what this means is that large scale industrialised farmers use preventative antibiotics as means to mitigate the risks of low welfare and health standards of cows on the beef they produce.
What's more, the The World Health Organization has strongly urged farmers to cease using such preventative antibiotics on livestock due the serios risk it poses to the health of the human population. Because man has become increasingly resistant to antibiotics, and we're not producing new ones, eating treated beef could pose serious health risks.Buy Preventative Antibiotic free roast beef
