The impressive line-up of speakers, organised by session organiser and chair Rob Archibald (Taranaki Bio-Extracts), will include three from overseas. Topics range from processing automation (Andrew Arnold, Scott Technology), desinewed meat production (Keith Cunningham, Newby Foods, UK) and optimising the value of residual meat (Guus Heijnen, Marel, the Netherlands) to the use of Beehive Separators (Julian Fairleigh, Fairleigh Enterprises) and modern technologies and equipment for MDM and three mm meat production (Roger America, Lima). Cunningham will also cover changes to UK and EU laws on harvested meat.
