Australian Chicken Meat Facts is an initiative of The Australian Chicken Meat Federation. Ongoing research continues to reveal that Australians are unnecessarily holding onto long-held myths and misconceptions about chicken meat. Australian Chicken Meat Facts has been designed to help educate consumers about the real facts relating to chicken meat production in Australia.
The Australian Chicken Meat Federation Inc. (ACMF) is the peak coordinating body for participants in the chicken meat industry in Australia. ACMF represents all elements of the industry, including chicken growers and processors, at the national level.
The ACMF represents the industry at the national level in matters regarding international trade, quarantine, animal health, biosecurity, food standards, food safety, animal welfare and a range of other areas affecting the Australian chicken industry. It is also actively involved in providing strategic direction to industry relevant research and development bodies, and is a signatory to the Emergency Animal Disease Response Agreement and member of Animal Health Australia.
The ACMF has a key role in developing policy and setting standards for the chicken meat industry in Australia, including in areas such as food safety, animal welfare, farming and processing practices, biosecurity, disease prevention and management and environmental practices.
