(American Meat Institute)

The American Meat Institute Foundation (AMIF) is partnering with the North American Meat Processors Association (NAMP) and the Beef Information Centre (BIC) on a new Centre of the Plate Training® class at the well-known culinary school at Vancouver Community College (VCC) in Vancouver, British Columbia. 

The class will be held February 23 – 25, 2011.  It will cover beef, veal, lamb and pork, as well as the always popular session on processed meats.  Steve Olson, NAMP’s standards and specifications advisor and former meat cuts specialist at the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), will be the lead instructor. 

BIC staff will conduct additional sessions with in-depth information on Canadian beef quality and marketing.

Participants will receive a copy of NAMP’s new, expanded Meat Buyer’s Guide, which is completely applicable to the Canadian trade.

The Canadian Meat Council (CMC) and Canadian Meat Business magazine also are co-sponsors.
