The Carnival Cruise Line is the global leader in the cruise industry, leading the way in innovative and sustainable cruising. We are excited that Coastal Lamb is soon to feature on the on-board menu on the New Zealand cruise.
Earlier in May, the team from Carnival Cruise Line visited Dave Jefferis at Waikiwi to film promotional material.
In February, Sam packed his bags and embarked on his OE. With a desire to experience farming overseas, Sam connected with Lord Newborough from Rhug Estate in Corwen, Denbighshire, Wales – where he secured a job.
Rhug Estate is known for its rich history, and its beautiful property which covers 12,500 acres extending from Gwyddelwern in the north, Carrog to the east, Cynwyd to the south and Maerdy to the west.
Rhug Estate shares many of the Coastal Lamb values through their self-contained field-to-plate operation.
Highlights for Sam have included the drive through takeaway shop on-farm, learning the Welsh way of doing things and hunting with hounds.

“It was extremely interesting to visit your beautiful farm and meet your partners”
– Jacques Boissier, Founder of Classic Fine Foods
Earlier this month we hosted Jacques and Nicolas from Classic Fine Foods Hong Kong, in New Zealand.
It was an excellent opportunity for many of our farmers to come together and meet our important in-market partners and showcase their farms.
In June 2021 our first Coastal Lamb container for Mauritius left New Zealand shores. Fast-forward to 2023, and we have now sent over 16 40ft containers to date. Earlier this year, Rich and Sophie visited Mauritous and met the Fine Foods Marketing Ltd Team – Mario, the Managing Director, Noelle – the Head of Restaurant Sales for Fine Foods and Ghylian – the Head of Business to Customer Channel and a further 13 members of their sales team.
It’s fantastic to be partnering with Mario and the Fine Foods Team in Mauritius
Over April and May we enjoyed celebrating Ruby and Sophie’s Graduations with Ceremonies in Dunedin and Christchurch.
We are excited for the future and look forward to them adding value to Coastal Lamb.
