Gira Global Meat Perspective Seminar

16 January 2019 – Wroxhall Abbey, Warwick

The core team of Gira meat market analysts, with the assistance of J.P. Garnier, will bring a version of Gira’s latest annual global meat market outlook forecasts tailored to the UK to Wroxhall Abbey near Birmingham on January 16th

This one-day seminar is targeted at a selected and invited audience of top management from across the species of the British meat industry and is facilitated by the British Meat Processors Association and the British Poultry Council.

The seminar will be a focused and intense review of global and European meat sector dynamics applied to what is relevant to the UK industry during the deep uncertainty of Brexit. It will provide global and European perspectives on production, consumption, trade, prices and key sector developments. Gira will supply a hard copy of the presentation material and key numbers.

The discussion will include coverage of the crucial variables, such as:

  • The impact of African swine fever
  • Rapidly mounting social pressures (e.g. the dynamic promotion of meat alternatives)
  • Changing Governmental policies (e.g. US trade friction)
  • Recent supply chain integration
  • And of course, we will debate Brexit.

An example of how some journalists/activists work. Anna quotes George Monbiot as saying: 'It’s an idealised position. I know we won’t get things to change as far as that...I then make it easier for others to find the political space in which change can take place'. Common ground?

The speakers at #RethinkForum all have a desire to find solutions to the climate crisis that won’t have unintended consequences worse than the original problem. It’s important that the full scientific picture is presented. https://rethinkforums.org/
