Australia. Export Abattoirs. A-Z

Abattoirs listed on A-Z

Note that this is not a comprehensive list of all abattoirs that have operated in Australia.

Mandatory registration of abattoirs has only been required for export facilities since 1997. Domestic facility don’t require Aus-meat registration and may choose to be registered. Many abattoirs that were export or domestic may have operated and closed prior to 1997 that are not listed. Some domestic facilities progressed to upgrades as export facilities.

There is most definitely more export abattoirs in Australia than is on this list that did operate but closed and now possibly demolished.

Current Export registered facilities can be found at
