Our Story

Born and raised on the farm, Steve Sinclair’s first knowledge of the livestock industry came from his father, Rob.

Steve then gained employment with one of Australia’s largest meat export companies, Tancred Bros, where he learned the ins and outs of butchery, animal health and welfare, and the business behind wholesale meats.

When Tancred Bros closed in 1990, a void was left in the supply of wholesale meat. With the ideal foundation in the industry, Steve together with his wife Gerry, began their own wholesale supply chain, delivering the highest quality beef and lamb from their own farm.

Within five years, Steve was supplying meat to butchers and supermarkets nationwide, and still does today.

Sinclair Meats was introduced to Mackay in 1995. The company was building a strong wholesale clientele in North Queensland, and with each visit, Steve and his wife Gerry, came to love the beautiful Whitsundays.

The Alfred Street store was the first store to open, with several more to follow, and most recently, the Mount Pleasant outlet.

The impact of Covid on retail business has been immeasurable, and we have seen a significant shift in the way customers choose to shop. Click and Collect, or Click and Deliver, have become the preference.

As a result, Sinclair Meats Mackay is placing high focus on online shopping and home delivery services, so those who like to shop from home can do so with ease. For a traditional shopping experience, call in to Sinclair Meats Mackay City (Alfred Street) or Sinclair Meats Mount Pleasant.

Today, we employ over 90 staff across farming, logistics, retail and butchery.

"We are the farmer, the supplier and the butcher; skilled and trained in every step of the paddock to plate process. No one does it better. That’s what makes us the real deal."
