The Australian Agricultural Company’s $91 million meatworks is expected to be operational by the second half of 2014, with construction well underway 

According to the ABC, the project is probably the most important agricultural project in northern Australia this year, and is expected to process more than 1,000 head of cattle a day at full capacity.

Located 50 kilometres south of Darwin, the abattoir will produce export beef products, hides and rendered products for markets in the US, Asia and Europe, with stock sourced from northern Queensland, South Australia, Western Australia and the Northern Territory.
