On both a local and global scale, it seems the meat and poultry industry are never far from challenges. Whether it be the changing market place, the ever-looming threat of disease outbreaks, or the media influencing consumers’ desire for meat, those within the industry must be aware of the many issues that may arise.
This seminar looks at some these current challenges and market trends by addressing the following:
- What products are meat eaters buying and what products are competing for a place in the shopping basket?
- The media coverage of what we should and should not eat leaves consumers confused about meat consumption and its contribution to the diet
- What is happening to the international meat trade in terms of tariffs, customs and veterinary aspects?
- A recent review of cutting plants by the FSA made recommendations. What are they and how are they progressing?
- What are the issues and control actions surrounding Shiga Toxin Producing E. coli (STEC)?
- Poultry production - links between what happens on farm and metrics at the factory
To address these questions, you’ll hear key speakers covering the current challenges, including:
- The changing consumption of meat products
- The nutritional contribution of meat to the diet
- How tariffs, customs and veterinary aspects are being affected in the international meat trade
- What is the progress on the FSA review of cutting plants and cold stores
