Industry Insights

On a global scale, Australia is well ahead of most red meat producers in managing COVID-19 including Europe and the United States, due to the constructive ways in which it has handled the repercussions of COVID-19.

This has increased Australia’s reputation as a reliable and secure source of red meat leading to a long-term competitive advantage.

Meat processing workers are considered a high priority group to receive the COVID-19 vaccine which will not act as a ‘silver bullet’ rather the strongest step in securing and protecting the adverse effects of another outbreak.

Despite ongoing trade tensions, Australia will not suffer significant losses in the long term as it is not overly exposed to trade in China. Some meat processors do have higher exposure and will need to focus on expanding their trade overseas.
