Our Story

The Northern Co-operative Meat Company Ltd (NCMC) is Australia’s largest meat processing Co-operative, proudly 100% member owned.

Our members are Australian farmers and businesses excelling in the paddock to plate philosophy.

Since 1933, we have established ourselves as an industry leader in meat processing, providing a unique opportunity to process livestock in world class processing facilities.

Our facilities are perfectly positioned on the east coast of Australia, drawing livestock from the best farming regions the country has on offer and are within close proximity to the Port of Brisbane, a major export hub.

Whilst we have grown and changed over the decades, our core values remain – respect, fairness and compassion. It is these values that translate into our quality service and products.

Our people and our community are our underlying strength and are at the core of our business. Today, NCMC has over 1000 highly trained and skilled employees, working across our five core business divisions.

Governance

We believe it is important to provide a clear set of values that emphasise a culture encompassing strong corporate governance, sound business practices and good ethical conduct.

Our Board endorsed the Co-operative and Mutual Enterprise (CME) Governance Principles 1st Edition – July 2018 and strives for best practice governance.

Our governance framework and our adherence to it, are fundamental in demonstrating that the Board are overseeing the management of risk and the future direction of NCMC. Our corporate governance policies are regularly reviewed to make sure they are consistent with best practice and are at the forefront of our business practices.

We will continue to lead our organisation in a way that ensures everyone grows together.
