Pialligo Estate is an historic farm with an award-winning smokehouse. We produce only the finest, 100% Australian culinary experiences in the heart of Canberra.
A total commitment to quality in everything we do is the cornerstone of our ongoing success.
Only export approved Australian pork, beef and seafood suppliers who recognise the important values of sustainable farming practices provide product to Pialligo Estate Smokehouse.
Achieving export certification in Australia in no mean feat. A rigorous application, auditing, assessment and approval process takes place. This also includes ongoing auditing and assessment of quality across the entire operations of the processing facility, company operations and personnel.
Pialligo Estate Smokehouse has been exporting our products for over 2-years, so the combination of our supplier accreditations, our own export accreditation, rigorous quality assurance measures ensure our finished product is of the highest order.
We currently supply bacon, salmon and a variety of sausage products in commercial quantities to customers in Singapore and Hong Kong.
OBE Organic produces the world’s best organic beef. We began in the 1990s as Australia’s first and only premium meat exporter 100% dedicated to the production of organic beef.
Formed by a group of far-sighted pastoral families, our company was founded on century old traditions – raising cattle exactly the way nature intended. No chemicals, no pollutants, no hormones, nothing, except a whole-hearted commitment to letting the most enriching natural forces and environment produce the very best grass fed organic beef.
Our mission is to provide safe food to families of the world.
We raise our cattle in the pure heartland of Australia, where they freely roam across natural organic plains, with hardly any fences. They live a life free from all unnecessary human interference, feeding on over 250 species of seasonal native grasses and plants.
We raise our cattle this way because we believe the quality of beef is a direct product of the environment in which it’s raised. You are what you eat, as they say.
The scale of OBE Organic’s free-range production operation is staggering: together, the families own over 7 million hectares of grazing land. That’s almost 17 million acres – about the area of Tasmania, or 1.5 times the area of Taiwan, or the combined area of Massachusetts, Connecticut and New Jersey.
Guided by heritage and driven by purity, OBE Organic delivers old-world quality with exceptional health and safety standards. Pure and simple.
As well as pioneering the organic beef industry in Australia, OBE Organic is also one of the first Australian beef supply chains to formally manage sustainability.
We do this because we know our stakeholders expect us to protect the environment our beef is sourced from, improve animal wellbeing, help people along our supply chain realise their full potential and deliver a safe and nutritious product to families around the world.
If we manage these things well, we should make our value chain stronger by reducing risk, increasing productivity and growing our business. At the same time, we aim to make positive impacts that contribute to the Australian Beef Sustainability Framework and the UN Sustainable Development goals.
Inspired by the wildflowers of our outback heartland that flourish when conditions are right, we call our sustainability program FLOURISH.

HUON Tasmanian Salmon
Based at the southern tip of Tasmania, where the mighty Huon River meets the Great Southern Ocean, HUON Premium Tasmanian salmon are reared and nurtured by some of the finest, and most innovative practitioners globally. Unique climatic conditions so prevalent in this wilderness, provide for a near perfect life. The water is clean, pristine and unspoilt. It is quite literally a paradise.
Whilst the conditions are heaven sent, the staff at HUON are also blessed; with passion, knowledge, flair, and a dedication to each other rarely seen. This style is practiced from the top down of the vertically integrated company. The result is salmon with rewarding texture, luscious colour, and succulent flavour.
Huon are proud salmon farmers and since the establishment of Huon Aquaculture in 1986, the business has grown to become Australia’s signature producer of salmon, recognised around the world for the quality of their salmon and the ingenuity of our operations.
An ethical business, respected Tasmanian brand, part of a sustainable industry and a company that is focused on the safety of their employees, the welfare of fish and the wildlife around them. Being responsible and caring members of our community is important because they are part of that community as well.
Global Salmon Initiative – Freshwater use
The six principles that have guided our planning are:
The Huon Method
For Huon, ethical farming involves:
We feed our salmon the highest quality feed available and have developed innovative feeding techniques that are now used all round the world. Just as importantly, when our salmon are processed for sale, we do it in a humane way, utilising equipment that has been awarded by the RSPCA UK.
However, it doesn’t stop there, each year we reinvest much of our returns back into the business through research and development because you see, in the words of our founders, Peter and Frances Bender, at Huon Aquaculture “we don’t want to be the biggest, we simply want to be the best.”
That is the ‘Huon Method’ and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
