 The Victorian Chicken Meat Council Inc (VCMC) is a member of the Australian Chicken Meat Federation (ACMF) which is the peak coordinating body for participants in the chicken meat industries in Australia.

The ACMF was formed in 1964. Its main objectives are:

  • The promotion and protection of the interests of the chicken meat industry;
  • The conduct or support of research on all aspects of the industry;
  • The securing of representation on appropriate committees, boards and commissions;
  • The approaching of government bodies on all matters of concern to the industry

ACMF is the industry representative recognised by the Australian Government. In this capacity, ACMF is a signatory to the Emergency Animal Disease Response Agreement and represents the industry at the national level in matters regarding international trade, quarantine, animal health, biosecurity, food standards and food safety, and animal welfare.

ACMF is also strongly involved in providing strategic direction to industry relevant research and development through providing research management services to the chicken meat R&D program, delivered under the umbrella of the Rural Industries R&D Corporation.

The ACMF maintains a very comprehensive website which we urge you to utilise for information about our industry, our processes and educational resources.
