What is Mottainai?
Mottainai is an ageless Japanese wisdom of interacting with the world such that we fully appreciate what exists, treat it as precious, and make full use of its potential.
Reconnect for the future
Mottainai Lamb is the future of sustainable food production. We apply mottainai to harness the potential of recycled organics through scientific innovation, discovering exclusive nutritional properties of carrots and olives.
- We Reduce landfill;
- Re-use olive and carrot by-product;
- Recycle carrot leaf;
- Respect our animals;
- and Reconnect with nature
Enlighten your palate
Mottainai Lamb is light and clean, sweet tasting meat. The unique fatty acid profile of Mottainai Lamb creates distinctively marbled meat with a buttery richness and no lanolin flavour. It is a perfect balance of tenderness and umami (savoury deliciousness).
Our Journey of Discovery
Mottainai Lamb is the result of genuine scientific innovation. 80% of food consumed by our lambs is recycled organics: carrots discarded as broken or misshapen, fresh carrot tops, carrot pomace and sedimentary extra-virgin olive oil. Our motivation is to make maximum use of natural resources to create special outcomes.
WE ARE SCIENTISTS. WE PRODUCE FOOD TO NURTURE AND SUSTAIN. WE ARE A FAMILY BUSINESS. WE CARE FOR THE FUTURE.
