Meat Business Women to address World Meat Congress

Related tags: Meat Business Women, World meat congress, Mexico

Industry networking group Meat Business Women is set to speak at the World Meat Congress in Cancun, Mexico later this year.

The presentation at the World Meat Congress has been a development from their global partnership with the International Meat Secretariat (IMS), a non-profit organisation that represents the global meat and livestock sector as a vital motor of growth for the sustainable supply of safe, healthy, high-quality and nutritious animal protein.

As part of the Meat Business Women presentation, it hopes to launch a global state of the nation report on current gender balance within the industry.

“The formation of Meat Business Women has created a positive global network and since one of the goals of IMS and the WMC is to be proactive in tackling industry challenges, their plans will add an interesting insight to our audience,”​ said IMS secretary general, Hsin Huang. 

Since partnering with IMS in January 2019, Meat Business Women has expanded its network from UK, New Zealand and Australia to include Ireland and the United States of America.

Meat Business Women chair Laura Ryan said she’s delighted with the opportunity to speak directly about the group’s goals to an audience that can instigate change. “It’s no secret that the industry is facing some enormous challenges yet there is so much potential around where we can position our sector. Ensuring we have access to the best possible talent pipeline is crucial and placing an international spotlight on our objectives will help us to achieve that.”

The group has also since addressed the United Nations at the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe session where Meat Business Women was recognised as a key partner to finding global solutions to the Sustainable Development Goals.
