Meat, your industry

We have been hunting for meat since the beginning of time. It consists of moisture, muscle, fat and connective tissue. The meat sector is involved with activities related to the slaughter, processing, packaging and distribution of cattle, pigs, sheep, game and poultry. Meat is then processed as a semi-manufactured product or as an end-product. Sometimes only the packaging of dairy products occurs. Ultimately, the product is distributed to retail, hospitality or foodservice outlets, and other food companies at home and abroad.
