The true home of Wagyu beef is Japan. However, due to the increasing demand and the high commercial value for Wagyu beef, there are other foreign countries that farm and sell wagyu beef. Recognising the need to distinguish true halal-certified Wagyu beef from Japan, the Japan Livestock Products Export Promotion Council will introduce QR Code technology for all Japanese Wagyu beef. The QR Code enables meat handlers, restaurants, supermarkets and end consumers to know accurately with detailed information on the traceability of the meat and to have the assurance of its origins and authenticity.
“The quality of Japanese Wagyu beef is unique due to the care and nurturing using special techniques and technology. The farmers are very precise in their methods and take extreme care of the livestock,” added Mr. Hishinuma Tsuyoshi.
Japanese Wagyu beef is famed for its texture, flavor and aroma. The “Wagyu beef aroma” is rich and sweet akin to peaches and coconuts. The retronasal aroma and flavor spreads when chewing the meat. The marbling texture adds to the deliciousness of the meat. Rather than being greasy, the high quality of fat has a melt in your mouth effect which makes for a juicy and delicious treat.
