About Us

Structure and Organisation

MINTRAC is governed by a Board of Directors representing the Meat Industry. The Board includes representatives of:

  • the peak employer body, Australian Meat Industry Council.
  • the meat industry union, the Australasian Meat Industry Employees Union.
  • meat processing plants
  • the Australian Meat Processor Corporation.

MINTRAC is staffed from its office in Drummoyne, an inner western suburb of Sydney. In addition, a Project Officer operates out of Canberra.

All work is carried out in association with representatives of the industry. There are both formal and informal opportunities for industry input. Formal opportunities for participation are provided through membership of reference groups for each training project and the industry network meetings. On an informal level MINTRAC Project Officers are on the road visiting meat plants and industry representatives are encouraged to contact MINTRAC staff at any time on training matters.
