Organised in conjunction with the Food Standards Agency, the debate will offer delegates the chance to grill Agency bosses face-to-face on issues surrounding the transformation of the MHS.
The event, entitled 'The Big Debate; have your say on meat hygiene charging', will be held at the Ardencote Manor Hotel, Warwick, on 13 February and is free for industry to attend.
Putting the case for the FSA will be its chief executive Tim Smith. Other speakers for industry will include Stuart Roberts from the British Meat Processors Association and Meurig Raymond, deputy president of the National Farmers' Union. Speakers from other sectors of the industry will also be taking part.
The debate is taking place as part of the FSA consultation on MHS charging, so all views expressed will help feed into that process.
