The red meat sector in Scotland is facing an unprecedented level of challenges. To ensure future prosperity, improved resilience is imperative both at individual business and industry levels.
Identifying steps that can be taken to future-proof Scotland’s red meat supply chain is a key objective of SRMRG. A collaborative approach and a recognition that ‘we are all in this together’ will be key to ensuring improved resilience from ‘field to plate’. The group’s aim is therefore to pool the thinking of its membership to generate consensus which can be presented as the views of Scotland’s red meat sector rather than that of the individual membership organisations.
