We hope these responses satisfactorily answer your questions. Of course you’re always welcome to contact us for more specific answers.
Can I have a free sample?
Yes, we'd be happy to send you a sample of our Beef Jerky, please send a stamped, self addressed, normal sized envelope to:
P.O. Box 4193
we'll send back a sample for you to try straight away.
We're confident you will find our products to be a taste revelation and a world away from the usual offerings found in retail outlets. To contain costs we need to restrict the size of our samples to individual taste testers. ( We can't send enough for you and all of your mates to try). We respect your privacy, we do not maintain a database of sample recipients, if we don't hear from you again, we will not contact you.
How is Aussie Jerky made?
Our Jerky is made from whole slices of premium Australian beef, trimmed of all sinew and visible fat, before being expertly slow marinated and cured in a unique blend of subtle spices. This process concentrates the distinctive flavours and nutritional qualities to produce a rich, full flavoured beef delicacy – a true taste sensation!
What cuts of Beef are used in Aussie Jerky?
Only first grade lean Australian Topside Beef is suitable for the preparation of our Jerky. Poor quality and marbled flesh meats would be too labour intensive and therefore uneconomical to prepare.
Why wasn't I charged the GST?
Aussie Jerky is a natural whole food; accordingly the GST does not apply to its sale.
Some meat snacks are classified as ‘manufactured meat’ products and therefore subject to the GST. These products are usually made by the addition of various fillers and binders to flaked / pulverised ‘meats’ before being heated and pressed into moulds.
Why does Aussie Jerky have so much protein, is it natural?
During processing the meats’ original weight is reduced by approximately 75%. This reduction occurs without loss of nutritional content.
What about delivery?
We despatch daily, to your home or workplace, Australia - wide by trackable Australia Post services, a flat fee of $7.00 applies for delivery anywhere within Australia regardless of the size of your order. Whether you buy a little, or pool with friends or family to take advantage of our bulk discounts, ( you'll save heaps on retail ) the delivery fee remains the same.
Why isn't there any testimonials on your web site?
We believe unverifiable testimonials have no credibility at all, however we would never recommend publishing personal contact details on the internet without good reason.
It would be very easy for us to invent accolades, something like:
Here’s what our customers say,
Your products are absolutely wonderful…….. I love them all, my husband, children and everyone else I know think they are terrific as well…….. thank you…….I’m so happy now. ……signed - Mary Smith, Canberra.
We rely on word - of – mouth recommendations from our greatest asset, satisfied customers.
How long will Aussie Jerky stay fresh?
Our products are shelf stable and do not require refrigeration. Our aim is to provide you with a natural snack food at the peak of its flavour, with the highest possible nutrition. To achieve this we limit the ‘ Best Before’ date to 4 / 6 months dependant on the particular product.
For long term storage we recomend an airtight container placed away from moisture and strong, direct sunlight.
Most meat snack manufacturers mass-produce and market their products with ‘Use By’ dates 1 or even 2 years in advance!
