Meet Tasman Meats

Posted by


It’s no secret that Australians love meat. We don’t really need an excuse or occasion to enjoy it. And with summer in full swing and BBQ’s blazing look no further than Tasman Meats to supply all your carnivore cravings.

They’re Australia’s leading independent retailer of meat and when you walk in to one of Tasman Meats 11 stores, you’ll immediately see why…flesh as far as the eye can see (and further!) at ridiculously low prices (they offer a “lowest price guarantee.”)

Not only are meats in this market style superstore categorised by animal (i.e – Beef, Pork, Chicken, etc); clear red and yellow signs will point you in the direction of cuts and products like roasts, spare ribs, chops, bacon rashers, salami, casserole, chicken schnitzels and so on as well.

And it does go on and on, not only can you buy any type of meat imaginable, vegetarians are catered for too with veggie shaslicks, veggie burgers, frozen fish, pastries, as well as staple and party essentials like dips, bread, snacks, beverages, desserts and so much more.

Whether it’s a BBQ, dinner or you’re simply looking for something different, pop your head into your local Tasman Meats – you will not be disappointed.

We visited the store at 4-5 Centre Dandenong Rd, Moorabbin Airport.
