Meat Symposiums

The 7th Meat Symposium held October 1992 at the Holiday Inn Pretoria

TITLE: Meat science and technology in service of the Meat Industry

This is a record of the proceedings of the Seventh Meat Symposium held on the 14th October 1992 at the Holiday Inn, Pretoria, Republic of South Africa, and organised by the Meat Industry Centre of the Irene Animal Production Institute, Irene, Republic of South Africa.

This is the first meat symposium presented under the auspices of the ARC, and the newly defined mission of the MIC namely, meat research, technology development and - transfer. It is also noteworthy that this symposium celebrates the first decade of meat symposia - we sincerely hope that we managed to serve the meat industry, according to their needs in the past and that we will be able to better our performance in this regard in future.
