The impact of transport to Australia's distant markets

A study has been undertaken on how the shelf life of vacuum packed beef and lamb primals from Australia to distant markets is influenced by conditions during shipping with Terms of Reference (ToRs) to:

1. Provide information on shipping times to each major market
2. Evaluate temperature:time relationships during shipping to each market
3. Assess the effect of temperature:time on the microbiological profile and shelf-life during shipping
