 Indonesian workers are still finding it difficult to understand why the Australian Government has implemented new animal welfare standards.

 Indonesian company Santori is the largest importer of Australian cattle, and a major processor and employer.

 A year since the trade was temporarily halted because of cruelty in Indonesian abattoirs, Santori's Bruce Warren says the company has spent thousands of dollars upgrading facilities and training workers.

 "For the average Indonesian worker, I think they still don't understand what all the fuss is about," he said.

 "To put that into context, Indonesia is more than 50 years behind Australia and they're still worried about whether they can feed their children or whether they can send to them to school.
 "They have got so many issues in day to day living."
