In this week’s week’s episode of The Weekly Grill podcast series, host Kerry Lonergan turns up the heat on Red Meat Advisory Council chair, John McKillop. The pair tackle sustainability, fake meat, red meat’s carbon footprint, the red meat industry’s ability to cut-through in Canberra, the evolving scope of RMAC, and other related issues.
What does the future hold for RMAC? How has a loophole created by changes to food standards regulations three years ago opened the door for plant based proteins to be able to use ‘meat’ labels?
