In 2016, IMTP was acquired by Minerva Foods, a Brazilian company globally recognized as one of the leading beef producers in South America. Minerva Foods specializes in the production and sale of beef and its byproducts, including leather and live cattle exports.


Following the acquisition, IMTP was renamed Minerva Foods Asia. This division played a crucial role in the company’s early journey in Australia, preserving the company’s culture, which has been nurtured since its inception, and introducing innovative solutions aimed at achieving the highest business standards.


Later, in October 2022, Minerva Foods expanded its presence in Australia by acquiring the Australia Lamb Company (ALC) through a joint venture with SALIC, further solidifying its position in the region.

Hotels, resorts, restaurants, supermarkets, and butchers around the world are supplied with ALC products from our four facilities located in Tammin and Esperance in Western Australia, as well as Sunshine in Melbourne, and Colac in southwest Victoria.


ALC exports to over 70 countries worldwide. Our customers expect superior quality and consistency in meat. The process begins with individually selected farmers, whose commitment to lamb production is combined with best management practices and ongoing dedication to improving product standards. All our sheep are protected by the Certified Animal Welfare System, demonstrating our commitment and compliance to ensure best practices during animal transportation and reception at our processing facilities.
