Angus Brand Verification began in 1995 with the launch of the Certified Australian Angus Beef (CAAB) brand. The program arose following several years of developing and testing during the mid-1990s to provide a mechanism to ensure that beef sold under this brand was genuinely Angus.
The CAAB brand, managed by Angus Australia subsidiary company Certified Angus Group, provided the blueprint and inspiration for the development of numerous commercial Angus brands in Australia from that point forward.
2017 marked the conclusion of the CAAB brand and the integration of Certified Angus Group into Angus Australia signifying the maturation of the growth of commercial Angus beef brands in Australia.
