COVID-19 has profoundly affected us all - the way we live, the way we do business and the way we travel. On Thursday, August 20, AMPC hosted a COVID-19 webinar in collaboration with Respond Global and the Australian Meat Industry Council to provide our members with information on how best to handle the new situation we find ourselves in.
After extensive consultation with members and key stakeholders, AMPC published its Strategic Plan 2020-25 document on June 30 2020. You can read the full plan here.
AMPC, with support from its industry technical steering committee, engaged Southern Engineering Services Ltd (SES) to develop a Lamb Tunnel Boning alpha-prototype. It is now time for Australian processors to work with SES to develop this solution to a commercial outcome. AMPC is seeking up to five lamb processors who would now like to further develop this innovation with SES and AMPC.
Currently state jurisdictions and the Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment (DAWE) are working through the publishing process for the new standard, with an outcome expected soon.
You may be aware that AMPC has set a target to improve its performance in member satisfaction. AMPC is required by government as a condition of its funding agreement to independently evaluate its performance to demonstrate the value of funds invested in its programs.
Plant Initiated Projects are fantastic opportunity for on-plant innovation and adoption in direct partnership and co-investment with processors. Since 1 July 2019, 35% of a processor’s levy is now quarantined for their own private R&D use.
The board, staff and members of the Australian Meat Processor Corporation (AMPC) congratulate Leanne Heywood on winning the 2019 NSW Business Woman of the Year award in Sydney last night.
The Australian Meat Processor Corporation (AMPC) is delighted to announce that Queensland University of Technology’s plasma scientist, Dr. Kateryna (Katia) Bazaka, is the AMPC award recipient for this year’s 2019 Science and Innovation Awards.
The structure of Australia’s red meat industry is under review and your views as industry members are sought before submissions close at 5:00pm AEDT Friday 14 March 2019.
