World Select Cuts LLC is announcing the expansion of its line of hand-crafted, premium deli meats, featuring free-range, pasture-raised Australian lamb: Aussie Select. Now available in a 4-ounce presliced pack, the products are ready to eat. Aussie Select also offers whole roasts for foodservice.

American consumers recognize that the provenance of Australian lamb is a marker of quality, extending from the paddock to the plate. With lamb making a strong showing on menus nationwide and becoming a more familiar protein in American homes, it's an optimal time for a premium deli meat featuring all-natural Aussie lamb.

The Aussie Select product line-up offers bold flavors and currently includes

  • Agave Rosemary Lamb Ham: 100% pure agave syrup and fragrant fresh rosemary with subtle notes of nutmeg, fennel and garlic
  • Lamb Pastrami: seasoned with traditional deli flavors like coarse ground black pepper, coriander and brown sugar, then smoked with hickory and mesquite, yielding a peppercorn bite with a tender texture
  • Tikka Masala Lamb Ham: warm toasted flavors of classic Indian Masala spices, balancing cumin, cardamom, coriander, cinnamon, cloves and nutmegs in a robust rub
