Event description
Discuss the opportunities for a mobile abattoir for red meat processing on the island

About this event

A new way to process meat has recently become possible in New Zealand. Mobile abattoirs. Much like traditional ‘Home Kill’ providers, animals are processed on-farm, but unlike Home Kill, the meat can be sold to the public. This creates the opportunity to develop a meat processing capability on Great Barrier Island.

At the Off the Grid Festival, Dr. Logan Wait, founder of knowyourfood.nz, will introduce the new possibilities, and canvas interest from local farmers and community.

Know Your Food is a social enterprise pioneering this new processing system. They are committed to supporting the transition towards regenerative agriculture, by providing farmers with a direct path to the growing market of conscious meat consumers. They currently supply Wagyu direct from farms to restaurants in Auckland, and sell online at www.knowyourfood.nz.
