A new industry conference will bring together trade associations and professional societies whose members fund and conduct meat and poultry research. Slated for Nov. 1-2 in Kansas City. Mo., the Meat and Poultry Research Conference will feature educational sessions and guest speakers addressing a number of topics, such as how production and processing practices may affect meat quality and food safety.
Attendees will discuss research priorities, share research results, and look at future needs in an effort to improve the industry's overall research program.
The conference is co-sponsored by the American Meat Institute Foundation, U.S. Poultry and Egg Association, National Cattlemen's Beef Association, and the National Pork Board. It will be open to all industry, government and academia that wish to participate.
