“The Pencil Box competition has a simple objective – to increase the awareness and
appreciation of the broad range of quality Australian beef and lamb products available for young chefs
to experiment with. Needless to say I am quite passionate about investing in the development and
training of young chefs as we develop the next generation of opinion leaders,” explained Aaron Iori,
MLA’ s Regional Manager, South East Asia and Greater China.
While the young chefs experimented with two beef cuts, they also learnt
that red meat is high in essential nutrients, such as iron, zinc, vitamin B12, vitamin D and protein.
More importantly, lean Australian red meat contains good fats, such as Omega 3, which are essential
for brain development, function and cardiovascular health.
