In close proximity to Diamond Valley Pork, the Australian Food Group abattoir uses a slightly different system of carbon dioxide gas stunning, however it is just as excruciating for the pigs.

One of three facilities exposed by Farm Transparency Project (FTP) in early 2023, for using excruciating carbon dioxide gas chambers to suffocate pigs prior to slaughter. An FTP investigator spent 9 hours hidden in a maintenance area above the chamber, to film the gassing of the pigs.

The slaughterhouse was a supplier for major supermarket Woolworths.

In April 2023, Animals Australia lodged a formal complaint with the government regulartor PrimeSafe, based on FTP's footage. PrimeSafe instructed the slaughterhouse to install cameras inside their gas chamber; rather than doing so, they decided to close down their slaughter operations permanently, laying off 16 workers.
