The government of Ireland, in collaboration with Teagasc, will host a United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) workshop focusing on eating quality, beef and lamb carcass grading to underpin consumer satisfaction and the implementation of UNECE standards. The workshop will also be supported by Meat Standards Australia.
In addition and in parallel, a training will be organized for participants interested in meat markets, quality production and standards for international meat trade particularly, the UNECE standards.
This workshop will take place before the 2017 ICoMST (63rd) and is, in part, a follow up to similar workshops held in the Republic of Korea and France associated with the 56th and 61st ICoMST respectively. As the 2017 ICoMST meeting will be held in Cork (Sunday 13th – Friday 18th August 2017), the Dublin workshop is an ideal opportunity to bring together those researchers with an interest in beef and lamb grading for eating quality.
The Conference is open to public and private experts including regulators, scientist and meat professional, however numbers will be limited to approximately 100.
Participants are responsible for their accommodation arrangements as well as transportation between their hotel and the meeting venue.
To facilitate further the international collaboration on sensory evaluation and industry systems underpinning carcass grading for consumer satisfaction of cooked beef and lamb. To facilitate the development of sustainable meat markets and the integration of Central Asian and Balkan countries into international meat trade.
