If your future lies in the red meat industry, don’t miss the Red Meat Industry Forum Conference 2005 Win-Win: Towards a profitable future, supported by Farmers Weekly.

It will be on 2 November, 2005 at the Queen Elizabeth 11 Conference Centre, London, and its aim is to identify how businesses of all sizes can improve profitability.

From beef, sheep and pig producers to abattoirs, processors and retailers, a wealth of first-hand information will be on offer, focused on how a range of companies can lift their profits.

This year’s conference will study three key areas: Elements of business success in every sector of the industry; how we can compete more effectively in international markets and 2006 and beyond – new directions on business improvement; and how RMIF can help the red meat industry make the most of the opportunities ahead.

Hosted by veteran broadcaster Michael Buerk, the conference will be supported by government ministers, industry leaders and participants of RMIF schemes who want to share their practical experiences.

Top-level support for the conference comes from Prince Charles and Tony Blair. “I could not be more pleased to support the work of the Red Meat Industry Forum, particularly its work in setting up Farm Business Improvement Clubs to support farmers in understanding their costs and their marketplace,” said Prince Charles.

Tony Blair said: “I am encouraged to learn the excellent results of the government’s support for the Red Meat Industry Forum and I wish the conference every success.”

So, if you want to make more of red meat, make a date to attend this prestigious conference. See you there.
