The Story of CAAB

CAABRibEye1Certified Australian Angus Beef ® is a quality assured beef product based on Angus genetics, and produced in Australia to exacting specifications.


Certified Australian Angus Beef, owned by Angus Australia members, is produced exclusively by Thomas Foods International (TFI) under the premium offering of the Thomas Foods Signature Range. The Signature Range, including brands Certified Australian Angus Beef ® and Angus Pure ®, are produced from cattle sourced from specific farms within controlled supply chains, with DNA samples taken from animals to allow for ‘whole of life traceability’ to the property of origin. This move to exclusivity on both brands presents a wonderful opportunity to further grow the brand both domestically and in export markets.

TFI is committed to producing a quality product that consistently meets customer specifications and needs, produced using the highest standards of animal health and welfare. TFI boasts a new state of the art beef boning facility that will increase the company’s capacity to produce meat products of the highest industry standard for local and international markets, and assure continued support of local producers.

With well established distributions channels, and export markets in over 80 countries around the world from wholesalers, supermarkets and processors to food service, hospitality and manufacturers, Thomas Foods International is committed to delivering real benefits to customers on a local and global level.


Originally developed in Scotland in the late 1700’s, Angus cattle are bred purely for the production of high quality beef indicated by the smooth, close-grained texture, carnation red colour and finely marbled fat within the lean muscle. Angus is now the dominant breed in many beef producing countries where beef quality is considered all-important. In Australia, Angus is continuing this dominance, with Certified Australian Angus Beef ® winning gold medals in various prestigious beef tasting competitions & carcass competitions across all breeds at Australia’s Royal Agricultural Societies shows.
