The Australian Meat Industry Council has released a report which shows that the industry’s regulatory cost burden is significantly higher than that of other major red meat-producing nations. The AMIC has called for government action to reduce export certification charges, which are estimated to cost the industry about $110m a year. CEO Patrick Hutchinson says these fees – which local producers must pay in full – are a key reason why Australian red meat is becoming globally uncompetitive.
