Meat Science Tutorials Project

For nearly two decades, the red meat processing industry and other key scientific organisations have invested in, developed, delivered and published a wide range of research outcome literature including reports, information sheets, manuals and guides as a means of disseminating new research finds to industry.

Specifically, AMPC, MLA and CSIRO have supported the Meat Technology Update publication series of research outcomes as a key communication mechanism to industry. However, more recently it was recognised that direct face to face dissemination of findings involving processing plant staff and scientists that carry out this fundamental research is a key area of need in order to ensure the uptake, adoption and understanding of research related findings. On this basis, a project titled "Processing Industry Meat Science Tutorials" was developed, which involved a workshop of mini-tutorials on a range of meat science related topics being delivered by a scientific panel to the industry.
