Sheepmeat Council of Australia (SCA) Directors met with representatives of the Australian Meat Industry Council (AMIC) in Dubbo last week as part of an ongoing program to seek a coordinated approach to important industry-wide issues in the sheepmeat sector. Key topics of discussion included:
The SCA members were invited to visit Fletcher International Exports’ processing operations in Dubbo to gain a firsthand insight into the operations of a major processor and exporter. ”Both organisations have made a firm commitment, on behalf of members, to continue to work together to strengthen the relationship between producers and processors in the Australian sheepmeat industry” said AMIC CEO, Patrick Hutchinson. “An undertaking has been made that an SCA commissioned report on the industry, once finalised, will form the basis for value chain consultation” Mr Hutchinson said.
