More than 200 jobs will be created in Queensland, Australia with the approval of a new cattle processing facility.

Flinders Shire Council announced that it has signed the Hughenden Processing Facility Project Development Deed to advance the development of a meat processing facility and feedlot with its Chinese partner CNVM Investment Pty Ltd.

Once fully operational, the facility will be able to process between 800 and 1,500 head per day. Construction is set to begin in late 2020, with completion expected in 2022.

The deed was signed at a ceremony attended by Queensland Chinese Consulate Officials and Miao Wang of CNVM Investment to demonstrate the Chinese Government’s commitment to supporting the development of trade corridors between Australia, China and this project.

Flinders Shire CEO Daryl Buckingham said: “I commend Ms Wang and CNVM Investments Pty Ltd for investing in the region through the Hughenden Processing Facility and Feedlot.  Ms Wang and Council are excited to be a part of the  team knowing that we will continue to work closely and collaboratively to ensure the successful operation and delivery of this project. 

“The Hughenden Processing Facility and Feedlot is further proof of Hughenden’s premium position in terms of transport options and proximity to the Port of Townville as well as its proactive and professional council. This Project will inject much needed infrastructure and market opportunities for the Beef Industry of North Queensland.” 

Flinders Shire Mayor Jane McNamara said the new project will “provide the opportunity to expand and develop further export channels and grow the current Domestic supply chain for Queensland beef into China”​.

Wang added: “This a very exciting project not only for CNVM and our partners along the supply chain to China, but also for further developing good working relationships between Australia and China. We at CNVM are very committed to the Hughenden Processing Facility and feedlot and are looking to complete the approvals and development process as quickly and effectively as possible, and to bringing this project to life for Australia and China.”
