Australian red meat has deservedly earned the trust of customers and consumers globally and continues to occupy an enviable brand position in many markets.
The Australian Meat Processor Corporation (AMPC), in collaboration with Response Consulting and Respond Global, have joined forces to deliver a unique and robust business resilience and continuity framework to AMPC’s red meat processor members, that will enable them to build the capacity needed to design and implement an infectious disease outbreak management plan, to keep employees and red meat safe from the invisible risk that a virus such as COVID-19 presents, now and into the future.
The national framework will enable red meat processors to quickly and safely respond to any future infectious disease outbreaks by delivering the following key elements:
Together, the above elements combine to place Australia’s red meat processing plant in a very strong position to be able to plan, respond and recover from an infectious disease event, when and if it happens.
AMPC member plants should contact their State’s Co-Innovation Manager for further details, or Amanda Carter, AMPC’s People & Culture Program Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 0429 658 124.
