Meat the Cut smartphone app

Beef + Lamb New Zealand have combined the New Zealand meat specifications guide and nutrition guide into one easy-to-use app called Meat the Cut, available from App Store and Google Play.

Combining these two guides into Meat the Cut has created a one stop shop for information on New Zealand beef and lamb cuts. The app shows where on the carcass the cut comes from, cut export code numbers and nutritional information.
