‘She Looks Like Me’ Aotearoa

December 8, 2021 By

As part of Meat Business Women’s #SheLooksLikeMe campaign, we’re showcasing six amazing women working in the meat industry in New Zealand.

Jayne McMillan is the star of our third ‘Spotlight On’ video which can be watched here. Jayne’s video showcases just one of many roles that the meat industry has to offer, so to celebrate that, our partners in Beef and Lamb NZ profiled six women who have great job satisfaction in the industry.
