Plus, Caroline Mitchell, a Nuffield Scholar sponsored by WCB will be speaking on her recently completed project on ‘How to Make Meat Eating Quality a Supply Chain Priority’ at 12.00 midday prior to the Court Lunch.

You are all very welcome to attend this talk, even if you are not attending the lunch.

Caroline, who up till recently was the Director of Meat Science at JSR Genetics Ltd, has been visiting individuals, meat plants and institutions in Ireland, Spain, Australia, Japan, the United States as well as attending the World Meat Congress in Dallas, Texas and World Pork Expo in Des Moines, Iowa.

She has been particularly focussing on carcass grading and payment systems which might play a role in improving eating quality for beef, sheepmeat and pigmeat in the UK.

She has had support funding from the WCB Education Charity.
