Shop window for stakeholders
April 15, 2016
Tuesday 15 March 2016
It was a record turnout at the successful 2016 AgResearch Meat Industry Workshop.
Representatives from almost all meat processing companies in New Zealand as well as from industry bodies, government, universities and other parts of the red meat value network came to AgResearch’s Ruakura campus for the workshop.
This annual workshop enables AgResearch science staff exchange ideas and develop research opportunities with industry stakeholders. It acts as a ‘shop window’ for the industry into the science undertaken by AgResearch and its collaborators.
Attendees were welcomed by AgResearch CEO, Tom Richardson who was followed by keynote speaker Allan Barber.
The day was broken into three sections:
- Added Value Products
- Value from Quality
- Food Provenance and Assurance.
Research results and projects updates were given by AgResearch staff and collaborators, followed by a discussion panel where themes from the day could be explored in more detail and feedback given.
Presentations from the 2016 Workshop are provided below (as PDF files).
