Offices have been established in major regions of the world to assist in
maintaining an adequate supply chain as well as promote the consumption of
Australia’s high-quality red meat through local information and marketing
The Australia livestock industries are committed to producing safe,
high-quality meat for customers everywhere. Australia’s abundance of natural
grazing land and strict government regulations allow livestock to be pasture
raised, without the use of additives such as antibiotics or hormones. Its
physical isolation as a separate continent contributes to Australia’s internationally
recognized status of being free of all major livestock diseases. MLA has helped
to pioneer state-of-the-art electronic tracking systems that allow Australian
red meat to be traced back to its ranch of origin.
When customers purchase meat from Australia, they are receiving products from
one of the safest and most stringently controlled meat industries in the world.
MLA is funded by cattle, sheep and goat rancher levies, joint funding from the
processing and live export sectors and, in the research and development area,
through Australian government dollar-for-dollar matching funds.
