ANZCO Foods CEO update - August 2022

Posted on Friday, 12 August 2022 under CEO Updates

With so much going on in the red meat industry including navigating new regulations and compliance, knowing emissions numbers, accessing talent and biosecurity concerns, it’s sometimes easy to forget about the good things occurring across the sector.

At the beginning of this month, I attended the annual Red Meat Sector Conference and it was heartening to have a reminder of the passion, innovation, experience, and depth of talent that exists in our industry along with the economic contribution we make.

Themed Reinventing for Sustainable Value, there were big focuses on innovation and technology, sustainability, challenges and opportunities, and consumer drivers and trends in the retail sector.

I really encourage farmers to take the time to attend this conference in the future. It’s such a great opportunity to network with people from across the entire sector, as well as celebrate all the good things going on in our industry. 

With the calf season in full swing and a later than anticipated tail to the lamb season, we encourage you to plan your processing requirements for lambs well in advance so that capacity considerations can be well managed. Please stay in touch with your Livestock Rep, particularly during the next two months, to ensure ANZCO Foods is best placed to meet your needs.

Lastly, ANZCO, like all others in the industry, is watching with interest the situation with Foot and Mouth Disease in Bali. The Meat Industry Association has information on FMD here, that features advice for farmers as well as what MPI will do in the event of an outbreak.
