One of the most important sources of protein for human consumption worldwide.

Poultry and meat are one of the most important sources of protein for human consumption worldwide. In this category find meat and poultry suppliers in Zambia selling processed meat and poultry products like sausages, beef, offal, T-bone, pork chops, chicken and turkey meats. These products are available on both wholesale and retail. Poultry and meat is a major delicacy in homesteads and even hotels. After beef, poultry is the most consumed meat in Zambia. Today in Zambia, poultry is embraced in almost every household as a source of income and food.

Meat includes all red meats from animal sources, although the only ones commonly available are beef, veal, pork, and lamb (or mutton in some countries). Poultry is the inclusive term for turkey, chicken, and duck, as well as pheasants and other less available fowl.

Pork

It is generally accepted that the best cuts of pork are those regarded as "white pork." These are animal parts that aren't laden with too much fat or connective tissue. This includes pork chops and ham. Although bacon and stripes are highly preferred, they are not referred to as white meat. Among pork, Spanish pork is considered the best in the world. This idea was forged during the settlement of America when the Spanish brought a love of pork products to the Americas and domesticated some of the best animals for this purpose. Spanish pork is also highly regarded in Europe for the same reason.

Poultry

The best cut of poultry is considered the breast meat because it has the lowest fat among the parts of the chicken. In Western cooking, the blue foot chicken raised in American Amish country and Canada is supposed to be the best-tasting available. Canadian poultry developed a reputation in the past 40 years as a cleaner-tasting and low-fat chicken breast. By Canadian law, this is a free-range chicken that provides high-quality organic poultry meat. This chicken is so highly regarded it is consumed raw in some parts of the world.

Beef

The best cuts of beef are generally thought to be fillet mignon, ribeye and tenderloin. There are many other cuts that are highly revered, such as Delmonico, London broil and sirloin. The most highly regarded beef comes from the Kobe district in Japan. These cows are massaged and kept in a low-stress environment before being butchered.

Venison

By far the most common form of game meat, venison is the term for meat that is harvested from a deer, whether hunted or farm-raised. Venison can be consumed as steaks, sausages, tenderloins and ground meats. Just as no two kinds of deer are alike, so it is that no two deer breeds will produce the same meat. Try Axis Deer for a meat that is akin to beef, or Sika Deer meat for a bold, game-y dish. When serving venison, never over-cook the meat, and consider pairing venison with a red wine, Schwarzbier, or apple cider.

Game Birds

Sally Noll of the University of Minnesota defines game birds as those birds for whom a licensed hunting season has been established. This can include pheasants, grouse, doves, quail, turkey, partridge and certain kinds of ducks. Game birds can present a cooking conundrum, as they cannot be served rare yet dry out rapidly. Roasting, grilling and poaching are common methods of cooking game birds. Typically mild in flavor, consider pairing game birds with hearty red wines or a white zinfandel.

Large Game

Large game species can differ from state-to-state but elk, bison, buffalo, javelina, moose and bears can typically be found in most charters for big game hunting. Availability depends largely on the location of the hunter; check with your local Department of Fish and Game to find out what large game are indigenous to your area. Though each animal has a distinct flavor profile, large game is typically assertive and bold in flavor. A burgundy or other hearty red wine is a good choice to accompany large game dishes.

Small Game

Rabbits and hare are the most popular types of small game, though squirrel and porcupine are also considered small game. In many states a small game hunting license will also allow the bearer to hunt game birds as well. Rabbits and hares are particularly suited to Italian herbs and seasonings. While they can be prepared in a variety of ways, both are best served in a stew or braise. Small game pair well with a cabernet sauvginon, or with a sweet white wine like riesling.

Exotic Game

Any region is bound to offer game that is highly specialized to that environment. The southern United States offers alligator hunting; travel to Africa and you will encounter zebra, ostrich and antelope, among others Kangaroo is popular in Australia, while New Zealand is home to rare trophies such as the wild boars and Himalayan Thar. Many travel agencies have information on safaris tailored to those who wish to hunt exotic game animals. It is best to go through a reputable travel agency in order to avoid unwittingly poaching animals or breaking the laws of your host country.
