Our story...

We are a second-generation family-owned Gippsland meat processor, with 65 years of history in Victoria. We are the largest processor of Meat Standards Australia (MSA) graded beef in Victoria and one of only six in Australia certified to process certified organic livestock for domestic consumption.
We are driven by a commitment to quality and industry excellence, the need to adapt to sustainability challenges and capture strategic growth opportunities. Through the implementation of our Environmental Improvement Plan in late 2005 to December 2010, we have achieved significant improvements in the following areas:
 - Total water consumption per tonne of production has reduced by 52 per cent and is about one-third of the industry average.
 - Electricity consumption per tonne is down by 4 per cent and gas consumption by 22 per cent; and
 - Motor fuel consumption per tonne has reduced 20 per cent.
Over this five year period, production has also expanded, with annual certified organic production increasing 195 per cent.
