300g (10.5oz) of thinly sliced free-range pork loin slices. These slices have a rich pork flavor and are perfect for Japanese dishes like sukiyaki. The fat renders beautifully and creates extra juiciness.
100% real free-range and naturally raised pork from Japan. Happy as a pig in mud. Bathing in the nearby river during summer and playing around on the snowfields in winter - that's the happy life of these pigs that are raised completely free-range. And when we say free range we mean the real deal free-range. Spring, summer, autumn, and winter - 24 hours, all year free-range. The images below are actual photos of the farms.
Free-range pork, in this case, pastured pork tastes different because it is different! The pigs are able to exercise freely and build natural muscles without the aid of growth promoters. Give it a try and taste the difference!
