Log in Join Grass Roots Action

Importing red meat from Australia to the United States involves multiple business processes, including product identification, shipping/receiving, customs declarations, certifications, and a lot more. The Meat Institute in collaboration with Meat and Livestock Australia (MLA), GS1 US, Meat Import Council of America (MICA), and Management for Technology has developed an overview for import houses and further manufacturers on the use of GS1-128 barcodes and electronic messaging to increase transparency and efficiency for imported red meat from Australia to the U.S. The webinar will review Australia’s electronic messaging system (Meat Messaging), GS1 US standards, the current allowances under FSIS Directive 9900.5 for correcting shipping marks when using barcodes, and the current pilot program under FSIS Notice 37-19 on the use of barcodes in lieu of shipping marks. Join a panel of experts to hear what import houses and other manufacturers/processors can do to increase transparency and efficiency for importing red meat products with the use of barcodes.

Learn how to:

  • Reduce product rejections due to labeling issues through use of FSIS Directive 9900.5
  • Increase efficiency of the re-inspection process by participating in the pilot program detailed in FSIS Notice 37-19
  • Utilize resources to improve supply chain operations
