The Meat Institute released details for two free education programs at the 2019 International Production and Processing Expo (IPPE), February 12-14, at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia.

The Get the Facts With Meat Mythcrushers session will introduce attendees to NAMI’s Meat Mythcrushers video series , which uses referenced facts and industry experts in the areas of affordability, animal welfare, antibiotics, environment, food safety, meat processing, nutrition and livestock handling to crush some of the most common myths to help consumers make informed choices. The session, which will be held Wednesday, February 13, from 2 to 3:30 p.m., will equip attendees with the tools needed to talk to consumers and customers about food production practices. NAMI Vice President of Public Affairs Eric Mittenthal will lead the session.

The Meat Industry Regulatory Update and Compliance Session, scheduled from 8 to 10 a.m. on Wednesday, February 13, will cover the major regulatory issues affecting meat processors in the past year and the challenges facing the meat and poultry industry in 2019. In addition, the session will provide an overview of common in-plant inspection and enforcement issues and discuss strategies to best respond to these matters. NAMI’s Senior Vice President of Regulatory and Scientific Affairs and General Counsel Mark Dopp and Vice President of Regulatory Services Norm Robertson will lead the session.
