Our committees

Our Committees are the driving force behind our work to improve the standards, sustainability and profitability of the British meat industry.

The volunteers who work on them are drawn from our member companies and provide invaluable insights and experience to help shape policy and initiatives.

Coupled with our strong working relationships with government and other organisations across the whole food industry and supply chain, our committees play a central role in the industry to uphold standards and drive change from the inside.

Members understand that playing an active part in how our industry is shaped benefits everyone involved from the companies that supply high quality meat products to the people that buy them. It’s for this reason that they continue to support our work by putting forward experienced representatives who know their subject to contribute to the work of our committees.
