Beaufort River Meats
To complement its live export capability and facilitate penetration into new and existing markets, Wellard also operates a sheep abattoir in Western Australia under the Beaufort River Meats (BRM) brand.
This modern abattoir can process 2500 sheep per day, is Halal accredited and approved to export chilled and frozen lamb and sheepmeat to the Middle East, Taiwan, the United States of America, Canada, Mexico, West Indies, Hong Kong, Vietnam, Japan, Singapore and China.
Beaufort River Meats also provides important competition in the marketplace (in addition to Wellard’s live export competition) for Western Australian sheep producers.
Wellard’s network of livestock buyers purchase sheep for both Beaufort River Meats and Wellard Rural Exports, providing a total purchasing solution and certainty of dual demand for farmers.

Quality assurance begins at the farm, so we work closely with our farmers, collecting and sharing information, key insights and feedback.
With regular information updates and consultation with producers, we encourage the supply of top-quality livestock. This includes detailed carcase performance data which is provided to producers as to measure on how their livestock have performed.
In turn, our plant is able to deliver new and innovative premium cuts and making a greater improvement to the eating quality of our chilled lamb products.
BRM possesses an integrated quality assurance program, incorporating all the elements of MSQA (Meat Safety Quality Assurance) and employing a comprehensive HACCP program as part of our Approved Arrangement. This includes regular inspection, testing and auditing by independent sources such as the Department of Agriculture; micro-testing of products and production environments; conformance to prescribed animal welfare instructions and strict adherence to customer and product specifications as well as ensuring compliance with Australian Standards and Government legislation.
