Dorper lamb chops - a cut above the rest

A recent study has shown that Dorper lamb chops really are a cut above the rest. By comparing lamb chops purchased at Woolworths with Dorper lamb chops Adelaide butcher, Trevor Hill, has shown that consumers who ‘pay more get a lot more’. The study was interested in the consumer perspective. Mr Hill trimmed the fat and sinew off a sample of Woolworths lamb chops and Dorper lamb chops to determine what each mouthful cost customers. The pack of Woolworths chops yielded 165 grams of meat from a pre trim weight of 344 grams which cost $23.99 a kilo. The Dorper chops yielded 415 grams of meat from a pre trim weight of 652 grams at a price of $25.99 a kilo.  So, really, the cost of meat going into the consumers mouth was $40.81 per kilo for the Dorper chops and $50 per kilo for the Woolworths chops. So the next time you buy lamb chops consider how much of it you will be trimming off and throwing in the bin. Don’t be misled by the price tag because although the price per kilo (pre trim weight) for Dorper lamb may be a couple of dollars more expensive, the yield of consumable meat is so much more. Dorper lamb is clearly the value for money choice for consumers.
