ETHICALLY SOURCED BEEF
We believe that beef that does good, tastes good!
At The Beef Man, we believe that every decision we make, even buying beef, has an environmental and social impact.
All of our beef is imported and produced under Hilton Quota Standards, this means that all of our cattle are 100% free-range, 100% free of hormones and antibiotics, 100% grass-fed from weaning, and confinement of any type is prohibited.
We partner directly with passionate, independent Argentine farmers, who know and respect their animals and every inch of their farmland.
By trading this way we cut out the middleman and pay a better price for quality meat. This way we get better value for our customers and a fairer deal for our farmers.
WHY ARGENTINE BEEF?
Argentina is blessed with the finest natural conditions in the world to raise large volumes of cattle. Vast natural pastures, clean air and water, combined with the best British beef breeds and cattlemen who live and breathe the process, makes for one of a kind meat that is famous worldwide for its flavour and tenderness.

HOW DOES IT GET HERE?
Our meat comes straight from Argentina, from our selected farms and through our certified abattoirs. We select only farmers that comply with a specific and regulated a quota system called “Hilton Quota” and only abattoirs that are approved to export to the most demanding markets.
WHAT IS Hilton Quota?
The Hilton Quota is the informal name of the Tariff Quota now regulated by the Commission Regulation (EU) No 593/2013 for the EU. It consists of a quota of 58,100 tonnes of high-quality fresh, chilled and frozen beef. The suppliers are Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay, Paraguay, USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. The Hilton Quota beef enjoys a duty preference vis-à-vis the European Union Most Favoured Nation import regime.
