Environmental Management Systems for the Chicken Meat Industry

Through the Pathways to Industry EMS Program, the Australian Government is helping industry take the next step – to enable producers to demonstrate their positive management practices and to translate these into sustainable and profitable outcomes.

Projects encompass activities such as training farmers in the adoption of EMS guidelines, modules and other tools, development of farm environmental management plans, piloting EMS/ environmental assurance approaches and pathways, communication strategies, and extending current EMS related projects through the supply chain.

The project is managed by the Australian Chicken Growers Council and seeks to raise the environmental awareness and increase the skills and knowledge of growers, which will promote the adoption of EMS on chicken meat farms beyond current regulatory requirements.  This includes a national roll out of an industry developed and recognised EMS training package nationally to a large percentage of growers as well as developing and implementing an EMS certification/auditing system for the industry.  To achieve these outcomes the ACGA has publicised the National EMS Training Package to industry and tailored the package for each state.  Trainers are facilitating the uptake and implementation of the chicken meat industry EMS guidelines, certification/auditing systems for farms and on-farm auditing of EMS once they are developed.  For further details, please contact Gary Sansom, Executive Officer of the Australian Chicken Growers Council.
