Australian Beef, Truly Good In Every Way

Are Cebuano Diners ready for this good news? Combining the nutritional properties, sustainability measures and high food safety standards of Australian beef, one can be assured of enjoying a product that is truly good in every way. As a new standard for red meat, Australian Grass Fed Beef offers a world class meat which Cebuanos would really love.

Main Course during Let's Meat Up Cebu. Cape Grim grassfeed beef tenderloin "Truffle" grilled pink with mushroom sauce enhanced with truffle sauce and accompanied by potato dumpling.

Our tables are ready for our 4-Course Dinner.
In the recent get-together dubbed "Let's Meat Up", jointly presented by Australian Trade Commission and Meat and Livestock Australia (MLA), it was highlighted that Australia's climate and environment provides the perfect growing conditions for all types of Beef, Lamb and Goat. With lush green pastures across the island continent, Australian farmers are able to develop a more natural approach to farming.

Ms. Natasha Monks, Australian Trade Commissioner noted that "In Australia, almost all cattle and sheep are raised on natural pastures and this meat is described as "grass fed" or "pasture fed". In the Philippines, over 90% of Australian beef that comes in is grass fed, and this means Filipinos can enjoy a better quality, healthier and tastier beef".

One grass fed beef product that has been sought after by butchers and chefs who have built their careers on choosing the best product and letting it speak for itself, is Cape Grim. Named after the North-Western point of Tasmania, Cape Grim Beef is the epitome of what the natural environment can do to a product. Cape Grim, along with other grass fed products are now available in top Cebu restaurants and supermarkets.

Australian grass fed beef is naturally low in fat and cholesterol, while offering a high level of Omega 3 fatty acids known to lower blood pressure and reduce the risk of certain cancers.

Let's Meat Up Dessert. Chocolate-cherry baton dark and white chocolate mousse in votive glass Cebu mango sorbet; butter soil!

With many countries, demanding full traceability from paddock to plate, MLA and the wider red meat industry have implemented a number of traceability and quality assurance programs, thus ensuring product quality and integrity, two key points that underpin Australia's valuable reputation as a global leader in the red meat industry.

"We are excited about this development. There are lot of things going for it" - good in flavor, good for the environment and good for the animal" Perez added.

Shangri-La's Mactan Resort and Spa Unveils Marine Conservation Hub (MACO)

After a very successful Global Wellness Day, Shangri-La's Mactan Resort and Spa launched its Marine conservation Hub, Maco’s Hub: Marine Conservation Kaakohan Center. Why do we need to reserve our Marine Resources? Why do we care? Majority of our food source is coming from our Seas and Oceans. We love fishes, Squids and even crave for crabs and shrimps for meals but did we contribute something to protect their ecosystem? Majority of us didn't - that includes me! With the help of Shangri-La's Mactan  MACO's Hub, we can inspire Beach Goers to uplift marine biodiversity and defend their homes.

The center was named after the resort’s mascot, “Maco”, a seahorse, a known icon of a healthy aquatic ecosystem. Maco stands for marine conservation and “kaakohan” is a Cebuano word meaning ownership. Having a strong sense of ownership towards the marine environment is what the hub aims promote to guests. It is adorned with a gallery where guests familiarize themselves with the marine species found at the resort’s sanctuary, and moving forward it will be the venue where guests participate in corporate social responsibility activities under the resort’s Care for Nature program.

Maco’s Hub inspires to create a healthy environment for over a hundred species of fish that call the Shangri-La Marine Sanctuary home, and ultimately to raise awareness on the importance of protecting underwater life throughout the world.

Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts remains committed to operating in an economically, socially and environmentally responsible manner whilst balancing the interests of diverse stakeholders. In striving to be a leader in corporate citizenship and sustainable development, a corporate-level CSR Committee drives the company’s initiatives in the strategic areas of stakeholder relations, environment, health and safety, supply chain and employees. These focus areas are unified under the umbrella brand of “Sustainability”, together with Shangri-La’s core CSR projects “Embrace” and “Sanctuary”.

MACO is located fronting the Shangri-La Marine Sanctuary at the beachfront.
