Australian red meat has deservedly earned the trust of customers and consumers globally and continues to occupy an enviable brand position in many markets.

But the entire industry came under threat from the invisible risk that is COVID-19.

The Australian Meat Processor Corporation (AMPC), in collaboration with Response Consulting and Respond Global, joined forces very early in the pandemic to deliver a unique and robust business resilience and continuity framework to AMPC’s red meat processor members, that enabled them to build the capacity needed to design and implement an infectious disease outbreak management plan, to keep employees and red meat safe from the invisible risk that a virus such as COVID-19 presents, now and into the future.

Developed with the support of the relevant public health authorities and key industry and auditory bodies across the country, the framework allows individual processing plants to adapt and implement a nationally approved infectious disease management plan to suit their own specific operating environments and to be agile enough to respond to changing disease risk levels as outbreaks occur within communities.
