AMIC AND BREAST CANCER NETWORK AUSTRALIA (BCNA) have joined forces to create the PINK BUTCHER program, a community based initiative that will assist the Independent Local Butcher Network giving back to the community in which they serve.
 All butchers across Australia will be invited to pink up their shops for the month of October to raise awareness and funds for Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA). 
 It all started when Sam (BCNA Community Liaison) at Seaford Gourmet meats in South Australia turned her shop pink in October. It inspired her fellow butchers to follow her example and The Pink Butcher was founded.
 Every day, 48 Australians will hear the words 'You have breast cancer.'
 With your help, BCNA works to ensure that Australians affected by breast cancer receive the very best support, information, treatment and care appropriate to their individual needs.
 To join The Pink Butcher campaign, complete the registration form and once BCNA receives it they will send you a pink starter pack to help you on your way.
 For any enquiries please contact Marita O'Keefe on 1800 500 258 or by email

 The PINK BUTCHER campaign is an opportunity for you to connect with your customers and consumers and make a difference via your business operations. In 2016, AMIC Members in South Australia started looking at this idea and over 100 stores participated in many activities. Only your imagination can stop you in delivering the PINK BUTCHER program. What you create and how you bring the concept to life will assist our communities in which we operate in

  2017 AMIC Qld Ham, Bacon, Jerky & Smallgoods Competition

The competition was held at the Stockmans Bar & Grill at the RNA, Tuesday 20th June. Again the standard of product from all butchers was very high. 

In the usual categories we had new members to AMIC come out as winners, e.g Gold Coast Fresh Meat Centre and Killarney Butchery.

Well done guys, great way to help boost your products and show your clientele what you have achieved. 

As per feedback from last year, the Jerky category was added into the competition this year. It proved to be successful with the entries entered and flavours judged.

that will provide training, help members network, communicate new ideas and improve
their business skills. We hope to see many members attend these meetings.

We have also added a second category to the Best Butchers Burger Competition as we have had a
