Your Meat Industry Fund
Also known as

Business Summary
For more than 30 years, AMIST Super has been helping people who work in the Australian meat industry to grow their super and plan for their retirement. But today, anyone can join. Find out why our members choose to stay with AMIST Super—even when they leave the meat industry. It’s because we care. We also have people on the ground talking to members at their worksites. We offer a personal service. And, there are no shareholders making a profit. All the money in the Fund belongs to its members.
