Botswana Meat Commission (BMC) was established on the 24th December 1965, by an act of Parliament to promote the development of the country’s beef and related products globally.

The BMC has had a significant contribution to the development of the country over the years. In the early years of Botswana’s development as an independent nation, beef export was the only foreign exchange earner. Although beef is no longer the largest earner of foreign exchange, it nonetheless remains a critical socio-economic driver in Botswana contributing to mass employment and GDP.

BMC head office in Lobatse comprises an integrated complex housing an Abattoir, deboning and cutting plant, cannery, rendering plant and tannery.
