What is Japanese Wagyu


Superb wagyu Japanese beef comes from the special technique and the attentive care given by the producer.  The term "wagyu beef cattle" refers to distinctive Japanese breeds.  Wagyu beef cattle are raised to be healthy animals in well-ventilated barns spread with sawdust.  They are fed with a mixture of hay and highly nutritious, safe compound feeds.  Farmers who breed wagyu cattle raise them with careful attention to detail as if they were their own children, keeping a close eye on everything, incuding their physical condition.


A smooth, marbled pattern: the hallmark of flavor and quality.

Exacting controls to deliver safe wagyu beef.

Japan implements extremely strict hygiene control over beef.  With the outbreak of BSE (Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy), it began BSE testing and removal of SRM (Specified Risk Material) for all cattle in Japan, which is one of the strictest standards in the world.  All domestic cattle are also registered in a database at birth with an individual identification number.  With the number on domestically produced beef sold in stores, the movement of cattle, including breed and birth date, can be found on the Internet.

Wagyu Grading System


Establishment of a Wagyu beef grading system that implements meat quality (5-1) and yield grade (A, B, C): 5 is the highest grade for meat quality.

To ensure fair trading, the Japan Meat Grading Assoiation has established a beef grading system.  Beef is graded based on the yield grade and meat quality.  The yield grade refers to the ratio of meat to total weight of the carcass and is classified into three grades from A to C with A being a grade of higher yield.  Meat quality is classified into four elements and graded from  5 to 1 based on "Marbling", "color", and "firmness of the meat", and the "color and quality of the fat".  The lowest of the four individual elements is the final grade allocated to the meat.  A thorough grading system of 15 grades through a combination  of the above two grading elements ensures a clear indication of Wagyu meat quality.  The majority of Wagyu exported  from Japan is generally awarded the highest grade of 5 or 4 in meat quality and meat of such caliber is rare even in Japan.  The yield grade indicates the amount of primal cut meat retrieved from the carcass and, based on the fact that exported beef is made up of primal cuts, there is no difference in the actual meat quality of A-5 and B-5 for instance.




One of the most important factors for grading beef quality is "marbling", which refers to the fine white layers of fat that run through lean beef and intensify flavor and tederness.
