Yarra Food

Yarra Food was incorporated in 2016 alongside Yarra Corp. The key purpose was to pioneer the import of Australian live slaughter cattle into China – bringing safe, fresh, nutritious and healthy premium beef to Chinese consumers.

Yarra Food abides by animal welfare protocols not because it is compulsory, but because we believe in the wellbeing of the cattle. We maintain this moral principle across the supply chain – that no animal should be subject to mistreatment, and that any animal’s pain, injury, or disease shall be prevented or treated. Through educating staff and cattle handlers, and conducting practical trainings we aspire to provide cattle that is free from injury, sickness, or stress which also directly translates to the quality of the eventual product served to customers.

Yarra Food is fitted out with one of the best abattoir equipments from Europe. This automated line has a capacity of 40 heads/hour and can produce up to 200,000 heads per year. Our staff are trained by the best experts from Australia and Europe, with special emphasis on animal welfare, food hygiene and operation efficiency.

We implement the strictest hygiene and food safety standards from the moment the cattle enter the production line. Disinfection and cleaning practices are monitored and reinforced firmly onto every staff, so that our customers have a peace of mind.
