The Australian Meat Industry Council (AMIC) is the Peak Council that represents retailers, processors, exporters and smallgoods manufacturers in the post-farm-gate meat industry.
RED MEAT AND A HEALTHY DIET
The World Health Organisation (WHO) released a report on October 26th 2015 which concludes that there is a probable link between the amount of red meat which is consumed and the development of cancer in humans.
This report is receiving extensive media coverage.
AMIC is addressing with Meat & Livestock Australia the substance of the report and relevance to Australian products and diets.
The AMIC National Retail Council has developed a communication to assist in addressing this issue.
