Eblex offers technical masterclass

A new two-day science masterclass has been introduced for meat industry workers by beef and lamb levy board Eblex.

The training course, which will take place on 14 and 15 April in Stratford-upon-Avon, will give attendees the opportunity to improve their technical knowledge.

The masterclass will be delivered by Dr Peter Sheard, formerly of the University of Bristol, alongside Eblex specialists. It aims to address all aspects of meat quality, such as tenderness, flavour and colour.

Eblex head of supply chain business development Dr Phil Hadley said: “Meat quality is fundamental to what we do. However, it’s an area where many people working in the industry could benefit from increasing their knowledge.

“By introducing this course, which we plan to offer on a regular basis to Eblex stakeholders, we’re aiming to help improve awareness of the basics of meat science and ensure that meat quality is maintained across the industry.”

Tickets are available to Eblex stakeholders at the subsidised cost of £100 per delegate, to include course material and overnight accommodation. For more information contact Eblex at processor@eblex.ahdb.org.uk or 0870 608 6610.
