Some abattoirs further process the pigs after slaughter. Processors can also be stand-alone enterprises.
Processing includes the cutting of the pig carcase into different parts for fresh or further preparation (e.g. moisture infused fresh pork or legs for hams). It can also cover the processing of pork meat into ham, bacon, salami and other products enjoyed by consumers in Australia or overseas.
The pork is then delivered to market either as processed products, or as a whole carcase to butchers for further processing.
