Benefits of attending

This course is an introduction to the area of meat and meat processing. It aims to provide an understanding of the science surrounding the raw material, factors affecting its quality, its functional properties and some common processes. Other areas intrinsically related to the manufacture of meat products are also covered, e.g. legislation, microbiology, hygienic design and layout.

Who should attend

Meat technology will be of interest to a wide array of people involved in the meat products industry. It will appeal to those involved in new product development, quality control and technical management as well as auditors and production staff. Non-technical delegates who wish to gain an understanding of meat and meat products are also welcome.

"As well as being a product in its own right, meat in its many forms is now a core raw material in a vast industry that encompasses many forms of processing and preservation techniques. Yet it has complex properties which are affected pre and post-slaughter and during processing which ultimately affect end product quality. This course will benefit those who wish to gain a better understanding of meat technology."
