Join us to learn and connect with industry leaders, collaborate, grow your network with a community of incredible women in the meat industry and get inspired!

‘The challenge of change’ in the meat industry will undoubtedly be a key focus in the coming years, in the wake of COP26, climate change goals, a labour crisis, consumer expectations, COVID-19 and other external pressures, meat industry professionals face a multitude of changes.

Join the Meat Business Women conference to hear from leading experts on the changes in the meat sector and external industry leaders on how they deal with change both professionally and personally.

Discover how different life stages can impact our approach to change with our dedicated panel discussion and workshop what these changes and challenges means for you via dedicated development sessions in the afternoon.
