Alpaca meat is highly nutritious, lean and flavoursome. It is an excellent source of protein with little saturated fat or cholesterol and is environmentally sustainable to produce. As most parts of the alpaca can be used for meat, alpacas offer a high yield with little wastage.
As the Australian meat farming industry seeks to remain competitive and develop further, alpacas are being looked to as a great investment.
