The Meat Institute announced details for four free education programs at the 2017 International Production and Processing Expo (IPPE), scheduled to take place January 31 - February 2, 2017, 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 Setting Up for Success: Processed Meat Product Introductions session will cover consumer trends and potential growth areas in the ready-to-eat product arena.

Meanwhile, the Whole Genome Sequencing - Food Safety Implications session will provide an overview regarding the use of whole genome sequencing (WGS) technology to address public health threats and enhance food safety. The Understanding and Achieving Operational Excellence workshop will examine the manufacturing strategies leading companies employ and how these strategies help those companies build a framework for systems of operational excellence.
