Australian Country Choice (ACC), the country’s premier supplier of high-quality meat products, with its factory in Cannon Hill, has been inducted into the illustrious Queensland Business Leaders Hall of Fame.



The privately-owned business has been recognised for its visionary leadership in establishing a vertically integrated beef and cattle industry that also supplies the rest of the world.


Australian Country Choice was one of six inductees into the Hall of Fame in 2021, along with Katie Page-Harvey (CEO of Harvey Norman), Sir John Beal Chandler (founder of Chandlers Electrical and radio station 4BC), T.C. Beirne (Queensland retail tycoon), The Coffee Club and Finlayson’s Timber and Hardware.

Company founder and Principal Director Trever Lee was at the induction ceremony in late 2021 to proudly accept the honor from Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk.

“To be included on the list alongside some of the founders of modern Queensland as well as some giants of the industry is truly humbling for Trevor and our business,” CEO Anthony Lee said.

“While we are honoured to receive this award for our contribution to Queensland, we are certainly still striving to make our business better each and every single day.

“Whether that be our ongoing commitment to ethical trading, achieving industry best practice in environmental sustainability and animal welfare, or being a caring and respected employer of more than 1,500 workers.”

The ACC leaders thanked all staff for their contribution to ACC’s inclusion in the Queensland Business Leaders Hall of Fame.
