sustaincircleThe rendering industry has led the recycling industry as we know it.

For over 200 years we have protected our environment by converting animal by-products from the human food processing industry into edible meat fractions, feed ingredients for livestock, companion animals and fish as well as pharmaceutical ingredients, edible tallow, tallow for soap, cosmetics and biofuels.

Nothing is wasted, we even return the water which represents 60% of animal bodyweight back to the environment to sustain our ecology.

Brian Bartlett AM (Dec)

Brian was the first President of the ARA serving the association in that role  from 1976 to 1992. In the early days of the Association he successfully led representations to government to abolish restrictions on the export of meat meal. Brian also led negotiations with shipping
companies to introduce competitive and uniform shipping rates.

Brian’s later initiatives as President of the Association were to establish the ARA’s biennial Symposia and the ARA’s accreditation workshops. He also prepared the first edition of the ARA Code of Practice for Hygienic Rendering.

In 2004 Brian was inducted as a member of the Order of Australia (AM) for his work on the development of grain export markets, services to the Australian Renderers Association and support of nutritional research.


The Association sadly advises the passing of Brian on 14 March 2016
