The state’s lamb producers are strengthening international exports to new and established markets while supporting jobs.
Minister for Agriculture Mary-Anne Thomas attended a cooking masterclass as part of the 2022 ‘Lambassador’ program and met with 30 international chefs who are in Melbourne to undertake a ‘paddock to plate’ workshop as part of the initiative.
The leading chefs will spend the week learning about Victorian lamb and the state’s producers, inspiring them to create their own signature dishes and promote Victorian lamb when they return home.
The Lambassador program is delivered by Meat and Livestock Australia with support from a $2.5 million grant from the state government’s Global Victoria’s Export Recovery Fund and Agriculture Victoria’s Food to Market program.

Having operated virtually during the pandemic, the return of the in-person program will see the group travel to regional Victoria to see where Victorian lamb is farmed, learn more about how it is produced, discover new cooking techniques and experience some of the state’s best food and wine.
The ‘Lambassador’ program began in Japan and will now be expanded to new regions including South East Asia, the Middle East and North America over the next two years.
