The Australian Meat Industry Council (AMIC) is the Peak Council that represents retailers, processors, exporters and smallgoods manufacturers in the post-farm-gate meat industry.

Resolution of Trade Disruption to China
AMIC welcomes the news received from the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources (DAWR) of the lifting of the suspension on import clearance by Chinese regulators against 4 AMIC members and JBS Australia on October 31st.

“As the Peak Industry Council representing the red meat export sector, we welcome this news from our great trading partner China,” said AMIC Chair Lachie Hart. “This industry employs almost 50,000 full time staff up and down the supply chain, as well as over 100,000 extra people through multiplier effects. We are the largest beef exporter and provide a large amount to this country’s GDP. This issue was impacting our members, and in turn the whole supply chain,” said Mr Hart. “AMIC worked ‘hand in glove’ with DAWR on this issue and this is a result of 3 months of dedicated work by DAWR and AMIC,” Mr Hart stated.
