During the past few months the Meat Board has been closely involved with the drawing up of a joint vision for the meat industry.

The joint vision was drawn up in cooperation with, among others, agricultural unions, abattoirs, processors, agents, hides and skins processors and feed companies. It will be ratified by the relevant parties on 31 August 2012, after which a joint session between the meat industry and the government will take place regarding the joint vision.
