Analysis of State-based processing costs

The objectives of the project were to provide state based red meat (beef) processing costs for NSW and Queensland to support a more detailed understanding of the cost pressures facing red meat processors, and thereby provide additional options to reduce the sectors costs.

The project followed on from an earlier AMPC Project “Analysis of regulatory and related costs and duplication in red meat processing” (colloquially referred to as “Cost to Operate Report” ). The latter report examined the key operating cost components in beef processing in Australia for 2015-16 and provided a comparison with costs incurred, including the regulatory components, in each of the United States, Brazil, Argentina supplemented by New Zealand.
