About Us

Samex was established in Australia - the world's leading red meat export nation - in 1978, and quickly became one of the country's principal meat export trading companies.

Our business was founded on the export of small stock, including sheep, lamb and goat, and quickly expanded to include beef and poultry as well as a full range of offals. The recent acquisition of Peterborough meatworks means Samex is now the largest exporter of camel meat in the world.

Today Samex has grown expansively. To meet the needs of an ever increasing customer base, we have opened offices in China and The Middle East, and have established supply arrangements with leading meat producers around the world.

We have become the trusted suppliers to all importers of meat products worldwide, including, wholesalers, distributors, major supermarket chains, shipchandlers and government agencies.

Understanding the customer’s requirements has been the key to our success.

About Us

Global Supply Network

An extensive supply network means Samex can source everything from high-value chilled lamb and beef, airfreighted daily for high end dining and discerning consumers. Samex also source manufacturing meat for some of the worlds leading producers of smallgoods and further processed meats. Much of the meat we source is Halal certified, processed strictly according to our buyers religious requirements.

We also have the experience to meet the strict regulatory standards of various countries. Samex understands the complexities of different markets and makes certain all shipments comply with the local import authorities requirements.

Our in-house shipping and export documentation departments work closely with the Australian Department of Agriculture and equivalent authorities in other countries.

Another important point of difference at Samex is our understanding of the international retail sector. Our founders were master butchers and have invested extensive market research in producing meat products valued by the consumer.

We have our own brands – Samex, Aussie Select, Down Under and Barossa Exports – that are sold around the world.

Associate Companies

Samex Peterborough

In January 2012, the Samex Group acquired 100% ownership of the Peterborough Abattoirs, trading as Samex Peterborough Pty. Ltd.

Samex Peterborough is an Export Registered Establishment through the Australian government Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry, under Establishment number 750. The abattoir is fully integrated with onsite slaughter, boning and freezing facilities.

The abattoir has recently undergone extensive renovations to improve efficiency and incorporate the latest technology in meat processing.

Located 260 Km’s north of Adelaide, Peterborough is ideally situated to process the camels that are mustered in central Australia.

Samex Peterborough is the largest processor of Australian Free Range Camels, processing all year round. All camels processed at the site are slaughtered according to Islamic rites and therefore meet the strict religious requirements of all Muslim consumers.

As well as the high quality meat and offal products produced, we are also able to supply associated byproducts which include hides, meat and bone meal, and tallow.

Samex Peterborough continues to be a leader in the camel industry and we have a clear vision  highlighting the importance of this protein being available to the many communities that value its attributes as part of a highly nutritious and healthy diet.
