We take the quality of the items we send you very seriously and want to make sure you receive the quality you are expecting with your Japanese wagyu purchase. The standard for qualifying Japanese wagyu beef must meet very rigorous standards to be considered A5 by the Japanese Meat Grading Association. Of course, marbling, color, shape, and size can vary depending on the individual cow and the cut you ordered.
