The TFGA would like to keep all of its members informed on the upcoming launch of the Meat Industry Strategic Plan.
(MISP) Tasmania has not been involved in the consultation process up until recently with a workshop held at Longford on 25th July 2019 (members were informed of this in a FastNews article and on Facebook). The TFGA believe our members need to be more involved as it is an important strategy for the meat industry which will be in place for the next 10 years and will help to shape the industry in the future.
The red meat industry is going through a major change driven by new consumer choices and a changing operating environment.
The aim of the MISP is to roadmap Australia’s red meat and livestock industry for the next 10 years with the desired result of our products being viewed around the world as a healthy, ethical and a safe choice for consumers.
The MISP 2030 is the strategic plan overseeing the Red Meat Memorandum of Understanding which is the underlying body of information detailing the value chain from farmgate to plate, to drive social and economic prosperity for the industry specifically and the Australian community more generally.
The TFGA want to keep our members informed and provide a platform for feedback, if desired, to be communicated back to RMAC as we all deserve a voice in this very important update to the meat industry and how it will be shaped in the future.
As Tasmania has not had enough consultation on this matter, the TFGA would like to give their members the opportunity to provide feedback to RMAC.
