Selling meat off farm that is slaughtered by a registered abattoir

Hi, I read the answer to a post about the process of how to go about legally slaughtering and selling meat off farm, and that it was a costly and lengthy process. How much would that change if the body is slaughtered by a registered abattoir? Then we would cut it up and package it here to be frozen and sold frozen from here...?

Can anybody please enlighten me? I want to sell beef direct to customers. We would be using a Primesafe abattoirs to process, and a Primesafe butcher to package, cryovac, label & freeze as customer requests. Do I have to have a refrigerated van or can the frozen meat be transported in giant eskies? Can I store in dedicated meat storage freezers in a dedicated meatroom, customer to collect, or do I have to deliver direct from butcher to customer? Is it better to sell on the hoof and let the customer take it from there?

Hi Margaret,

Thanks for the question, I'm not 100% sure of the answer. However, I have shared the question to our Facebook discussion group and someone there will surely know the answer.

What state are you in as this could make a difference?

Regards,

Charlie

Hi. Our level 3 licence permits us to sell meat that has been packed, cryovacced, labelled and frozen by a Primesafe (Vic) licenced butcher. Mode of transport must also be approved and temperature logs kept up to date.
