BEEF producers will have an opportunity to hear first-hand about the outlook for Australian red meat in key international markets, including the opportunities and challenges for the next 12 months and beyond, at the upcoming 2017 Global Markets Forum.
The beef forum, hosted in March in Brisbane by Meat & Livestock Australia, will feature presentations from MLA’s international business managers on international market programs. Domestic market programs will also be covered on the day.
The event will be an open forum, with producers and industry stakeholders in attendance. Participants are encouraged to ask questions and engage in discussion about the opportunities for red meat across global markets.
MLA conducts market access and business development activities as well as a range of customised marketing programs and activities across the globe, tailored to each key export market and distribution channel. The producer-owned company has offices and staff based in-market in key export markets to promote and grow demand for Australian red meat and to reinforce our position as a source of high quality product.
Through its international offices, MLA is also able to provide producers and the broader industry with valuable insights on emerging trends that allow Australian red meat to remain competitive in a global marketplace.
With Australia exporting red meat and livestock to more than 100 countries and representing over 70pc of the industry’s production, it is critical to protect and expand our industry’s access to overseas markets.
