Animal welfare   /    Processing     

Australian cattle and sheep are ethically and humanely processed to the strict industry standards.

The Australian processing sector worked with industry and the RSPCA to contribute to standards and guidelines to meet the requirements for the provision of good animal welfare standards.

The Australian Animal Welfare Certification System (AAWCS) is an independently audited certification program. It is used by livestock processors to demonstrate compliance with Australian industry standards from receival of livestock to the point of humane processing.
