THE LIONS KINGDOM
WE OFFER OUR CUSTOMERS THE CHANCE TO EAT LIKE THE PLANETS LEADING APEX PREDATOR. THE CHANCE TO ENJOY ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS AND SUSTAINABLE GAME MEAT FROM THE PLAINS OF AFRICA.
HIGHER IN PROTEIN
OSTRICH IS NOT JUST DELICIOUS BUT IS INCREDIBLY HIGH IN PROTEIN. THIS IS BECAUSE THESE ANIMALS HAVE EVOLVED TO EVADE SOME OF THE FASTEST PREDATORS ON THE PLANET ON THE PLAINS OF AFRICA. THIS MEANS THAT THEY CONTAIN HIGHER MUSCLE TO FAT RATIOS THAN FARMED ANIMALS AND SO HAVE MUCH HIGHER PROTEIN LEVELS.
LOWER IN FAT & CALORIES
OSTRICH MEAT IS INCREDIBLY LEAN BECAUSE OF THE EVOLUTIONARY ARMS RACE THE SPECIES HAS PARTAKEN IN AGAINST LIONS, CHEETAHS AND LEOPARDS. AS SUCH CARRYING HIGH FAT LEVELS WOULD ONLY SLOW THEM DOWN AND SO OSTRICH MEAT HAS VERY LOW LEVELS OF FAT AND CALORIES COMPARED WITH THE FARMED ANIMALS OF BRITAIN. FOR INSTANCE ONE OSTRICH STEAK HAS HALF THE CALORIES OF A BEEF STEAK AND ONE TENTH THE SATURATED FAT.
THE LIONS KINGDOM HAS PARTNERED WITH AFRICA'S LARGEST PRODUCER OF SUSTAINABLE OSTRICH. ALL OF THE OSTRICH WE WORK WITH MEETS THE STRICTEST STANDARDS OF ETHICAL PRODUCTION AND PRACTICES WHICH ENSURE THE OSTRICH POPULATION REMAINS HEALTHY AND PROTECTED INDEFINITELY. ALL OF OUR OSTRICH IS SUSTAINABLY FARMED IN WHAT IN THE UK WOULD SURPASS FREE RANGE FARMING PRACTICES.
AFRICA IS A PLACE OF GREAT BEAUTY BUT ALSO GREAT TRAGEDY. IT IS HOME TO SOME OF THE MOST POVERTY STRICKEN PLACES ON EARTH. BY EATING OSTRICH FROM THE LIONS KINGDOM YOU ARE HELPING INVEST MUCH NEEDED COMMERCE INTO THE COMMUNITIES WHICH URGENTLY NEED JOBS AND OPPORTUNITY. THIS IS PROVIDED THROUGH OUR PARTNERSHIPS WITH OUR SUPPLIERS BECAUSE AS OUR VOLUME GROWS, SO DO THE JOBS IN THEIR REGIONS.
WE LOVE NATURE AND ITS PRESERVATION IS ABSOLUTELY CRITICAL TO THE ANIMALS WE WORK WITH. THIS IS WHY OUR PACKAGING IS 100% RECYLABLE.
ALL OF OUR MEAT IS FROZEN AT SOURCE IN ORDER TO ENSURE THAT BY THE TIME IT REACHES YOU IT IS STILL 100% DELICIOUS. THIS ALSO HELPS IN THE FIGHT AGAINST FOOD WASTE. BY EFFECTIVELY PRESSING THE PAUSE BUTTON ON THE PRODUCT THROUGH FREEZING WE ENSURE THAT BY THE TIME YOU THAW IT OUT AND COOK IT, IT STILL TASTES EXACTLY THE SAME AS IT WOULD HAD YOU PUT IT ON THE BBQ BACK IN AFRICA.
FORGED BY INTERNATIONAL ATHLETES
THE LIONS KINGDOM WAS FORGED BY FORMER INTERNATIONAL RUGBY PLAYERS THAT VISITED SOUTH AFRICA ON ENGLAND DUTY AND FELL IN LOVE WITH THE INCREDIBLE MEAT AVAILABLE THERE. THEY WANTED TO SHARE THIS LOVE WITH THE UNITED KINGDOM AND THUS THE LIONS KINGDOM WAS BORN.
