At Coles, our farmers believe that good quality beef doesn’t need added hormones, and that’s why all of our Coles Brand fresh beef is 100% Aussie with no added hormones.
"Good beef doesn’t need hormones"
When it comes to beef, Coles offers a variety of products to meet our customers’ needs, from Coles Graze™ grass-fed beef, to 100 day grain fed Coles Finest beef.
Beef lovers would argue that each has its own unique taste. And that’s why we provide our customers with a choice.
Coles Finest fresh beef is always 100% Australian with no added hormones. The cattle begin eating grass and are then fed grains such as barley and wheat.
Graze™; our specialty beef range, is 100% Australian, grass-fed and has no added hormones. Growers adhere to high standards where cattle are free to roam and are not fed grain at all.
Whatever your beef is, if it’s Coles Brand fresh beef you can be certain it’s 100% Aussie with no added hormones to help bring you better quality beef.
In a picturesque town in North East Victoria, second generation farmer Nigel Stephens is one of over 100 Graze farmers that produces quality Graze™ beef on his farm of 1500 acres.
Nigel is a proud supporter of grass-fed farming practices. ‘I’ve been working with Coles for more than fifteen years and this provides a fantastic opportunity for my farm to diversify and increase our supply,' he says. ‘It means we will provide more cattle and get a good price all year round.’
And what’s good for farmers is good for Australia, too. Because Nigel’s farm of grass-fed Angus and Hereford cattle is just one of over 100 farms across the country that help Coles offer quality Graze beef all year round – from porterhouse and scotch to stir fry and mince.
At Coles, it means our cattle are free to graze on pastures and are never fed grain.
Graze™ beef producer, Nigel Stephens says ‘the secret to grass-fed beef is that there is no secret’. Our pasture-fed cattle are raised naturally and raised with care. Customer should be happy knowing that they have been grass-fed and not finished on grain – while ensuring they can be confident about where it comes from.'
So the next time you see Coles Graze™ Beef in store, remember, its’ grass-fed, 100% Aussie and, as with all Coles beef, completely free from added hormones.

1: Be generous with the seasoning
“It’s impossible to season the inside of a steak, so seasoning the outside is really important. It’s also going to give you that gorgeous crust you’re looking for. Season the steaks with salt and pepper on both sides.”
2: Add Olive Oil but don't overdo it
“You don’t need a lot of oil – I like to rub a little bit over the steaks, but some people prefer to brush it over the grill to prevent sticking.”
3: Let the grill do the work
“For that caramelised crust, once you put the steak in the pan, don’t mess with it – it needs to stay in contact with the grill for at least a minute until it’s deep golden brown.”
4: Rest steaks on rack - not on a plate
“Rest the cooked steaks on a wire rack over a baking tray so they’re not sweating in their own juices. Don’t skip this step – it’s the key to a perfectly succulent and juicy steak.”
Working with the RSPCA, we offer a range of humanely farmed chickens, grown on farms that must meet strict animal welfare standards and provide an enriched environment for chickens to grow.
We’ve worked with our farmers and suppliers to ensure all Coles Brand fresh pork is sow stall-free and free from artificial growth promotants.
We believe you can’t rush quality. So we’ve partnered with expert French baker, Laurent Boillon, to create our Coles Finest 30 Hour Sourdough Range.
Right across the store, from seafood in the deli to frozen fish in the freezers, all Coles Brand seafood is responsibly sourced – so whatever you buy, you’ll always know you’re making a better choice for our oceans.
