Everyone loves a BBQ, but have you ever wondered how meat gets from the farm to your supermarket fridge or butcher shop? Its through the work of meat processing. This surprisingly technologically advanced sector is vital to feeding Australia and many other parts of the world.
Meat processing offers a wide range of job opportunities for people in places like abattoirs, boning rooms, smallgoods, food services and retail outlets as well as more technical areas such as meat safety/inspection, quality assurance, logistics management, effluent treatment and environmental control. Better still, while training you are fully paid and your skills are recognised throughout Australia.
If managing people is your thing, there are also great careers in team leadership, human resource management, occupational health and safety, training and marketing.
