For human consumption

Australians, following British traditions, have historically rarely eaten horsemeat. Today, around 90,000 horses are slaughtered annually nationwide, with the bulk of the meat exported or fed to racing greyhounds.

Mondo's in Perth, Western Australia, is one of the few butchers in Australia licensed to slaughter and supply horsemeat for human consumption in 2014.

Mondo's sells around 250 kilograms each month, mostly to customers associated with places in Europe and Asia where horse is a popular meat.
