"Discover Australia”: Promotion of Australian meat
Special promotion for the month of November: the customers of all Roadhouse Grill steakhouses in Italy can enjoy the "Outback Steak " and the "Ribeye", two extraordinary meat cuts from Australian farms
Rome, 28 October 2013. Roadhouse Grill (Cremonini Group ) introduced the new promotion "Discover Australia" dedicated to the special valorisation of high quality beef cuts from Australia: during the month of November, the customers of all Roadhouse Grill steakhouses in Italy can enjoy the "Outback Steak " and the "Ribeye", two extraordinary meat cuts from Australian farms. The offer has the official patronage of the MLA - Meat & Livestock Australia, the official Australian institution for the promotion of the beef supply chain, and is guaranteed by INALCA, the principal producer of beef in Italy and the official supplier of meat to Roadhouse Grill.
Australian Ambassador to Italy David Ritchie commented, “I am delighted to give my support to this promotion of Australian beef. The food and drink sector has always been a key element in the trade relationship between Italy and Australia and the cooperation between Meat & Livestock Australia and INALCA is an excellent example of the mutual benefits for business in both countries.”
The "Discover Australia" promotion is composed of two special cuts: the first, the "Outback Steak", inspired by the endless Australian pastures (the Outback), is offered with an original recipe of "black smoke" salt and extra virgin olive oil. It is a thin slice of meat cut from the front, very tasty and succulent, with a distinctive flavour. It is an absolute novelty for Italy, while in other countries, like France, it is widespread and appreciated. The second is a classic Ribeye (Entrecote), the principal cut of the hindquarter, presented as a special 500 g selection.
Tribuna Economica's special feature on Australia
Tribuna Economica, the business and financial magazine which can also be downloaded online, has produced a special feature on Australia and its economic relations with Italy. The publication includes an interview with Ambassador David Ritchie. Download the document (in Italian).
Alessandro Del Piero in Italy
In August Sydney FC played a number of matches in Italy, culminating in a match against Reggiana in Reggio Emilia. Prior to the match the Italian star of the team, Alessandro Del Piero, was presented with a copy of the Italian flag – the tricolore – the origin of which is tied to Reggio Emilia. Del Piero will take the flag back to Sydney as a symbol of the friendship between the two countries. Ambassador David Ritchie, together with Mauro del Bue, the local assessor for sport, and TV personality Melita Toniolo, presented the tricolore to Del Piero.
On his return to Australia Del Piero was named captain of Sydney FC for the coming season.
