Australia. Domestic Abattoirs. A-Z

Abattoirs listed on www.australianabattoirs.com 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. If they did upgrade to export then they are more likely to be found on the page

There is most definitely many domestic abattoirs that did operate and are either now demolished, closed or possibly still operating that are not on this list.

A list of Export facilities can be found at
