In mid-2020, the Minister for Agriculture, Drought and Emergency Management convened a joint government-industry Meat Modernisation Working Group (MMWG) to accelerate the modernisation of the Australian Export Meat Inspection System (AEMIS) as it nears the 10th anniversary of its introduction.

As part of this agenda, the MMWG commissioned a high-level Digital Transformation Roadmap, co-funded by government and industry through the Australian Meat Processor Corporation (AMPC), to leverage technology and improve data capture, sharing and analysis, and recommend a path ahead for investment by both industry and government. The MMWG has informed a compelling vision for modernisation and how digital transformation will support risk- and performance-based, data-informed regulation and unlock further potential of the Australian export meat sector as a trusted, competitive and forward-thinking supplier to growing markets.

The roadmap will be submitted by the MMWG to the Minister to complement a broader report from the group on meat modernisation.
