Whether your favourite is the humble breast, an extravagant strudel or a golden Kiev, there is no doubt that Lamberts Fresh Produce is no Spring chicken when it comes to supplying some of the best poultry products in North Queensland… and for good reason.
It’s no secret that Lamberts Fresh Produce is a well-loved local fresh food stalwart, delivering the best North Queensland produce, meat and stockfeed.
But did you know Lamberts actuallystocks over 60 types of chicken products? And that the entire range is sourced locally and prepared in-house before heading onward to your table?
It’s these special touches that makes their poultry range the freshest and most diverse in the region.
Scratching out a living
The team behind the chicken at Lamberts consists of Troy, Jules, Primo, Sonia and Matty, who are all assisted by Lamberts’ Manager, Luke Clasie.
Behind the scenes, they watch the Steggles North Queensland truck roll in daily, healthily loaded up with fresh, whole birds.
Then, once the truck is unloaded, the magic happens.
The team gets to work, transforming the fresh, local birds (which are never frozen) into an array of delectable products including fresh cuts, through to family-meal-ready commodoties like kebabs, rissoles, schnitzels, strudels, meatloaves, sausages, enchiladas, Kiev and much, much more.
Every gram of produce in their hand-crafted recipes is sourced locally, and every element of each product’s creation is completed in-house.
“We care about where our chicken comes from,” says Luke.
“How it was raised and how it was processed has a huge impact on the quality of the final product, and we like to know that the welfare of the animal has been considered through all stages of its life.”
And it’s with this, that Lamberts Fresh Produce have made it their mission to use only the freshest chicken and the best ingredients, in order to provide Townsville families with delicious, convenient and innovative ready-to-cook chicken meals, every day.
Cultivating the finest chooks
Steggles North Queensland is proud of its brand, so you won’t find any chickens coming from other corners of the country in their trucks.
That means all of the poultry supplied to Lamberts, arrives fresh and ready for preparing into the best dinner ideas for their loyal clientele.
