The Cambinata Yabbies
Cambinata is a pioneer in the yabby farming industry. Since business started in 1991, Cambinata has been responsible for training more than 1200 farmers in the production of superior quality yabbies. These yabbies are all grain-fed and are harvested using traps. To ensure that you receive the best quality product, we make sure we know where every yabby was caught, and maintain the cold chain from farmer to consumer. Cambinata’s yabbies are available in plentiful supply during the seven months from mid-November to mid-May. Better still, by developing new farming techniques to improve productivity, particularly during the off-season, we can supply on demand all year round. Wherever you are in the world, we can deliver fresh, live yabbies via air freight. A healthy environment is important, and careful processing is vital. Yabbies are processed in Cambinata’s quality-assured factory under strict supervision, using the most advanced technology available in the industry. Our massive, state-of-the-art refrigerated tank stores the yabbies in crystal clear water, and assures a continuous supply of prime quality yabbies. They are carefully packed in polystyrene boxes for transport, and frozen gel packs keep the product chilled to the perfect temperature whilst in transit. On arrival, to ensure maximum storage life, you simply refrigerate them (2–8 °C). They will survive, live, for at least seven days in refrigeration.
Cambinata yabbies are weighed individually and sorted according to grade. Yabbies are available in the following sizes:
In this health conscious century, yabbies deserve pride of place. They live naturally in the waters of Australia – a part of the world renowned for its pristine, pollution-free environment. Yabbies are virtually fat-free (0.12 per cent) with a cholesterol level so low that it is immeasurable1. The amino acid profile of yabbies is similar to that of other crustaceans with the presence of desirable long-chain, polyunsaturated fatty acids.
Cambinata Yabbies are Australian Quarantine HACCP and export accredited. Cambinata Yabbies are individually sorted and graded for perfection to meet the needs of our customers and our Company’s vision to strive to be the supplier of choice to leading shellfish purchasers worldwide. We provide premium quality yabbies and service in a timely and profitable manner.
