Meat for Diversifying Markets
Worldwide, meat and meat products are becoming an intrinsic part of
evermore diversifying markets. With this in mind, we need to consider
future scenarios concerning potential developments and options in a
globalized world. On one hand there are interventions from the political
sphere but there is also a demand for innovation from within the meat sector itself. Will globalized free trade and digitalization have a significant impact on the meat industry? Will values such as regionalization and
quality gain importance in the future? To what extent does consumer
behaviour lead to market driven innovations? Is the meat sector able to
push innovation on its own terms?
The 65th International Congress of Meat Science and Technology 2019 in Potsdam/Berlin, Germany 04–09 August 2019 is themed ‘Meat for
Diversifying Markets’ and will deal with various main topics: consumer
behaviour, sustainability, ethics and social questions, primary production, health and nutrition, microbiology, product innovation, services, emerging technologies and digitalization.
We look forward to seeing you at next year’s 65th ICoMST 2019 in
