Normally Michael Borg is busy wielding knives at M&J Butchery, but instead he’s been using a paint brush to spruce up the Moulder Street shop.

Mr Borg said the renovation matches the business’s focus on quality control.

“It’s not just a meal, but a memorable one. We’re bringing the restaurant experience home,” he said.

Mr Borg recently expanded, operating Meat Central at Harris Farm.

“The same quality available at Moulder Street is available at Meat Central. We still do dry-aging, plus grain feed beef and local lamb,” Mr Borg said.

Fresh bread

GROCERY shopping gets tricky when you’re lactose intolerant, have a nut allergy or are looking for something vegan.

Cath Asimus’s mum has been a diagnosed coeliac and knows it’s hard to find quality alternatives.

She’s now a distributor for Choices Gluten Free, which bakes bread suitable for people who need or want to be gluten free.

“Allergies can mean an entire family goes without eggs, nuts, diary or soy,” Ms Asimus said.

“Standard gluten-free bread has to be toasted to be palatable, but this bakery makes bread that can be eaten fresh.”

Global leader

F45 Training studio has won the company’s global eight-week challenge, with Anthony Begg winning the men’s division.

Mr Begg said F45 promoted a holistic approach to fitness, including resistance, cardio and nutrition.

“It focuses on different components and I like the community feel of the studio,” he said.

“My training buddy for the last two weeks was new to town and with limited exercise experience. There is a huge range of fitness levels training together as a team, I’ve met different people and made some great friends.”

It’s the first first time Orange’s F45 studio’s members have participated in the challenge, with 60 people working towards their goal over eight weeks.

Studio director Corey Brown said winning wasn’t just about weight loss but could include muscle growth.

Almost 500 studios were involved in the challenge.
