The International Meat Secretariat (IMS) and the Dutch Meat Industry Association (COV) invite the global meat industry to attend the World Meat Congress 2023 on October 11-13, 2023 at the Maastricht Exhibition & Conference Centre in Maastricht, the Netherlands. 

It is expected that hundreds of people working in the meat industry and adjacent lines of business will attend. On the agenda are current global challenges for the industry, such as:

  • the role of meat in the global climate ambitions
  • society’s expectations on animal welfare
  • the labor market
  • alternatives for meat such as cultivated meat
  • the impact of (geo)political developments on meat trade and production.

Laurens Hoedemaker, president of COV, said, “The world is on the verge of several major changes and transitions. Social and environmental developments lead to a critical view on the production of meat and meat products. At the same time the sector – helped by technological innovation - is making big strides towards more sustainable production. The central theme of the congress is therefore Meeting Society & Consumer.”

How does the international meat industry deal with all these challenges? Highly interesting speakers from the academic world, international organisations and representatives of the meat value chain will address these questions.

This makes the congress also vastly attractive for stakeholders not directly working in the international meat business, such as representatives of government, trade organisations, retailers and NGOs.
