Shark Lake Piggery Wins National Pork Award
WAPPA members Deb and Stephen Hoffrichter from Shark Lake Piggery in Esperance have taken out top honours in Australian Pork Limited 'Steak Your Claim' competition. Their meat was commended for having excellent marbling, being bright and beautiful when raw and having a great flavour profile, excellent juiciness and being an al-dente style pork.
'We have worked hard on quality improvement, invested more than $2 million dollars in the last few years and worked closely with our stock providers,” Mr Hoffrichter said.
“It’s really great to have our efforts rewarded in this way.”
Western Australia put in a strong performance. Linton Batt of Butcher's Block came 3rd whilst Linley Valley Pork came 4th and 5th.
