Why choose Australian Food Super?
Australian Food Super has been in the superannuation business for more than 35 years. Previously operating as AMIST Super, we’ve been helping people who work in the Australian meat industry to grow their super and plan for their retirement.
But today, anyone can join.
That’s why we’ve changed our name to Australian Food Super. Our members have been choosing to stay with us, even when they leave the meat industry for these many good reasons:
Basic financial planning advice for members, at no extra cost!*
Anyone can join and take us with them no matter where they work.

Low cost administration
$1.70 pw+ 0.07% p.a. of your account balance.
Members can opt in to have low-cost Life Insurance, Total and Permanent Disablement (TPD) Cover and Income Protection Cover. Members 25 years of age or older will automatically receive insurance cover when their account balance reaches $6000. Insurance cover is not compulsory though so you can opt out any time.
Visits from the client service team to help members where large groups work.
Choose from 7 options or a mix to suit you – plus we provide a low cost default option, MySuper.
Receive payment of your super as an income stream:
- Regular pension payments are not taxed from age 60 onwards,
- Income earned on your pension balance is not taxed once you have met a condition of release.#
Australian Food Super is open to anyone irrespective of their employment.
*Australian Food Super has engaged Link Advice ABN 36 105 811 836, AFSL No. 258 145, to provide this advice.

AUSTRALIAN FOOD SUPER
Australian Food Super has been around for more than 35 years. And while we have been known as the largest meat industry super fund in Australia, these days, you don’t need to work in the meat industry to be a member. It’s true that most of our members joined when they worked in the meat industry, but increasing numbers of members are moving to other industries and choosing to keep their super with us.
Being a member of Australian Food Super is not just about saving for retirement, it’s actually a community. And one of the things that makes us a little bit different to other funds is our personal service.
We are a small, agile, and hardworking team, dedicated to helping our members understand their super and get the most out of it, and for those employers where large groups of our members work, we provide that service onsite.
