Meat Matters! We All Have a Steak in this!

Meat Matters! We All Have a Steak in this!

AMPC has undertaken research to develop deeper understandings about the red meat processing industry by producing educational resources for secondary and primary schools. Angela Colliver Consulting is developing these resources and a key objective of this project was to expand awareness about the red meat processing industry by engaging teachers, students and career advisors about the role and importance of the industry in the Australian economy, environment and wider community.

The purpose of the Paddock to Plate interactive resource is to introduce school students to the red meat processing industry in Australia and its supply chain. The animated resource shows the journey of how beef, lamb and goat meat gets from the cow, sheep and goat to you. Most people know that beef comes from a cow but many don’t know how Australian beef cuts are processed and produced. Similarly, with sheep and goats, do you know how their meat is processed and produced? Most of us buy our red meat from shops. But is that where they came from originally and is that where they are processed and produced?
