It was with great pleasure that Mark Richard, Meat Industry Teacher, TAFE Queensland was presented with the 2018 Eddie Andriessen Award at this year's Meat Inspection and Quality Assurance (MI&QA) Conference in Surfers Paradise.
AMPC had the opportunity to attend the 2018 LambEx conference in Perth last week, alongside our exhibition partners AMIC, MINTRAC and AUS-MEAT. It was great to work alongside these important industry bodies, sharing some of our research highlights and facilitating valuable conversations with AMPC and AMIC members about industry issues.
Nominations are now open for the 2018 Eddie Andriessen Award, recognising significant contribution to Meat Inspection and Quality Assurance (MI&QA) in Australia in areas such as R&D, training or professional development of meat safety/QA personnel in the Australian meat industry.
AMPC and MINTRAC have recently completed work on a series of short, sharp online videos which can be used by red meat processing companies and trainers to support induction, careers promotion, commencement of training, and refresher training. The videos are now available in five different languages (Korean, Chinese, Vietnamese, Filipino and Portuguese).
Each video is accompanied by worksheets, also available in multiple languages (contact MINTRAC at firstname.lastname@example.org).
If you’re interested in upskilling your knowledge on microbiological meat testing, be sure to register to attend MINTRAC’s Meat Micro workshop in Wagga Wagga from May 24-25.
