They have committed $30 million to the project, which includes a large shift towards environmentally sustainable processing.

Director of Operations at Thomas Foods International, David McKay, said that investing in sustainable best practices would secure their growth as an efficient exporter.

“The international demand for high quality Australian meat continues to strengthen,” he said.

The infrastructure projects, which include larger holding facilities for livestock, wastewater treatment facilities and sustainable energy programs, are expected to bring benefits to their business as well as the surrounding regional economy.

“We’re currently processing in excess of 120,000 lambs and sheep, and 5000 cattle per week across the group for our 80 export markets and we’d like to increase those numbers in the coming years,” he said.
