The most important factor of eating quality in meat is “tenderness”.
Meltique Beef assures consistent tenderness through our patented unique and one of a kind process; the idea originally came from the French culinary technique “Piquer”. “Consistent tenderness” is the biggest reason why Meltique Beef has been loved worldwide over the years.
