Meat Industry Day is an initiative led by the Australian Meat Processor Corporation (AMPC) partnering with the Australian Meat Industry Council (AMIC) and Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA).
Stuart Shaw, AMPC’s program manager – Advanced Manufacturing, says a dedicated time and space for the meat sector will allow for industry updates and insights as well as showcasing the great opportunities in the sector to potential partners.
“We want this day to be of value for those in the industry, and those who could partner with industry to develop new ideas, solve challenges and come up with new commercial ideas that will drive meat processing through its next evolution,” Shaw says.
“There are many innovations in other sectors that could have meat processing applications. We want to encourage potential partners to see where the opportunity in red meat could be for them.”
The agenda is being finalised now and full details will be released soon. Highlights will include a leadership panel discussion about the red meat sector five years from now, a packaging sustainability panel and updates on AMPC’s many R&D projects.
“Meat Industry Day at APPEX will give delegates the opportunity to hear from leading researchers, businesses and industry bodies to learn about our economically critical industry. It’s a great chance to showcase the innovative nature of the sector and investigate how we can create opportunity from within, and outside of industry,“ Stuart says.
“If you are part of the red meat industry or looking for opportunities in red meat R&D, you don’t want to miss this rare chance to understand where this industry is – and could be – going.”
Meat Industry Day will be held on Wednesday 13th March from 10am – 3pm in the Seminar Theatre at APPEX. Networking drinks will follow at La Cantina. APPEX attendees are welcome to attend any or all of the sessions during Meat Industry Day. For further updates visit https://www.appex.com.au/meat-industry-day.
