At Kilcoy Global Foods Australia we actively seek to engage with businesses that are driven by a social or environmental purpose, or that support people who have traditionally been financially excluded.

All our selected feedlot partners and station agents are accredited under the National Feedlot Accreditation Scheme which aligns with our commitment to animal welfare, environmental protection, meat quality, and food safety.


We have built strong partnerships with organisations helping to build stronger, more inclusive communities.

Where possible we source business inputs locally and partner with people and organisations that share our values.
