Corporate entry Australian Frozen Meat Export Company (1880 - 1886)

April 1880
Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
Exports or Imports and Food or beverage industry
Melbourne, Victoria


Formed in Melbourne in April 1880, the Australian Frozen Meat Export Company was established to export frozen meat to England. The first shipment departed in November 1880 and arrived safely in England in January 1881. Problems faced by the company included reluctance on the part of shipping companies to provide sufficient refrigeration space. Competition arose from other places exporting frozen meat to England, including New Zealand and South America. The Company failed in 1886.
