Animal Welfare

Macro Meats also adheres to the National Code of Practice for the Humane Shooting of Kangaroos and Wallabies for Commercial Purposes, this code was developed after extensive consultation between government, animal welfare groups, industry, the scientific community and the public. It requires that field harvesters do not shoot if there is any doubt that they will not achieve a sudden and humane death by a single shot to the head. Macro Meat’s policy is to not harvest female kangaroos.

Animal Welfare

Male only policy

Macro Meats have had a policy to only cull male kangaroos since early 2012 and have actively lobbied other Kangaroo Industry Association members to follow. Macro Meats number one priority is Animal Welfare, followed by sustainability and consistent meat quality. We also respect the beliefs of Indigenous Australians that animals should only be killed for food.
