At Progressive Meats we strive to achieve success in a structured team environment. There is also opportunity for individual advancement and incentives for personal achievement. We have onsite committees that involve employee representatives for health and safety, and also for skills and training. At PML, you are involved in the business and in this environment; your efforts matter.

Being at the leading edge of innovation is one of our key drivers. We aim to produce top quality products for the end consumer and have long term relationships with our exporter partners.

Underpinning Craig’s business acumen is a background in science including a Food Technology Degree majoring in Engineering. But he describes his forte as process design.

An example of Craig’s vision of leading processing innovation was building our state-of-the-art boning room in 2004 to maximise carcass yields. Under the Marel boning system one boner bones out an entire lamb carcass, each cut is then weighed and the saleable meat yield is calculated against a saleable meat yield value index. This information can then be passed on to the farmer. Our suppliers can opt to be paid for their actual saleable meat yield, which is calculated as a percentage of the weekly schedule.
