SOUTH AFRICA - The International Meat Secretariat is to hold its 17th World Meat Congress in Cape Town from 7-10 September 2008.

The congress will look at global policy changes that are affecting the meat industry around the world and will have a series of speeches from leading politicians.

The programme will also look at the global demand for meat, consumer expectations, the role of the retailer and food service operator.

Other presentations will also look at meat supply and productivity with reference to bio-fuels.

There will be a session looking at the social responsibility of the meat industry, international trade rules and an overview of te markets around the world.


The congress will also host the species committees of the IMS and the IMS General Assembly.

The congress will also have a series of social events and tours surrounding the event.

"As the international forum for our industry, the IMS has been bringing together meat professionals from many different horizons for the benefit of the industry as a whole, since its founding in 1974," says IMS president Paddy Moore.

"Cape Town will be the occasion for us to observe industry trends, share experiences on developing markets, assess how we can face the challenges presented by the international trade environment, examine the impact of science and technology on our industry, and look to the future in a world where the demand for meat has never been greater."

Cape Town is a magnificent destination for us in the meat industry to meet our counterparts from other countries, renew acquaintances, and multiply our international business contacts.
