AMPC Innovation Showcase

The future of red meat processing

AMPC invites red meat processors and industry participants from across Australia to attend the inaugural AMPC Innovation Showcase. 

The three-day event will be held from Tuesday 11 October to Thursday 13 October at the Victorian Pavilion, Melbourne Showgrounds and will explore the theme -  “The future of red meat processing”. The theme highlights the importance of adopting innovative solutions to build a stronger and more sustainable red meat processing industry.

The Showcase will bring together red meat processors and industry participants from across Australia to experience new innovative ideas and technologies from AMPC’s research and development providers and hear and learn from world-class speakers, listen in to panel sessions, and participate in various workshops.

We have an exciting line up of keynote and external speakers and will be releasing details of these in the coming weeks. Panel sessions will also include technical experts, processors, and AMPC research managers. 

The Showcase consists of three key elements:

1. an exciting demonstration area showcasing innovative technology for red meat processors 

2. plenary sessions on stage where you will hear from keynote speakers and industry experts 

3. workshops in break-out rooms

Who should attend the Innovation Showcase?
