Angus beef from the South West will be used to make an exclusive pie that will only be available at Optus Stadium when it opens early next year.

The Dardanup Butchering Company has teamed up with Mrs Mac’s to produce the Dardanup Evertender Steak Pie, which is made from ingredients sourced from WA growers.

Mrs Mac’s chief executive officer Paul Slaughter said he was pleased to work with the DBC as the two companies shared a strong relationship.

“We chose them because we have been dealing with them for 30 years,” he said.

“Like Mrs Mac’s it is local, family-owned, West Australian business and the pie is created with prime cuts of slow-cooked Angus beef.

“This is an example of two great family-owned West Australian businesses striving to make the highest quality product available and creating local employment by doing so.”

DBC retail-ready manager Blake Panizza, whose grandfather started the company, said the collaboration between the two companies was mutually beneficial.

“It is not only beneficial for the two companies, it is also beneficial to the local economy and the more than 500 West Australians that we collectively employ,” he said.

“I look forward to supporting my beloved team at the stadium, knowing my purchase of the Dardanup Evertender Angus meat pie is supporting many other West Australians,”

Sport and Recreation Minister Mick Murray said it was great to see the benefits of the new stadium will not just impact the city but also people in the South West.

“Mrs Mac’s currently sources 2800 tonnes of beef from this area per annum. This new partnership with the Dardanup Butchering Company will result in additional tonnes of beef being sourced from the South West,” he said.

“It is really good to think that the jobs are made more secure by solid contracts such as these.”
