Future meat industry leaders to meet on animal welfare

Future leaders of the European meat industry will gather in London this May to discuss issues surrounding animal welfare in meat production.

A conference, organised and hosted by Eblex, for the Young European Meat Committee (YEMCO) will see young executives gather on 10-11 May to discuss a range of issues affecting the meat industry.

The programme will also see a keynote address from Andrea Gavinelli, head of the Animal Welfare Unit at the European Commission.

Dr Phil Hadley, Eblex southern senior regional manager, said the event would provide a great opportunity for young executives across the UK: “The YEMCO conference provides an ideal forum and, as such, younger managers from meat processing and trading businesses from throughout the UK would benefit from attending the meeting and exchanging views with their peers in other European countries on issues that affect the industry.”
