US steak cut innovation in focus at EBLEX Processor Conference

Latest developments on cutting methods in the US beef sector to enhance carcase utilisation will be highlighted at the EBLEX Processor Conference.

Professor Chris Calkins, from the University of Nebraska, will focus on the topic during the conference on 22nd January 2015 in Stratford, Warwickshire. He will outline how the uptake of new cutting methods has helped develop a new range of steak cuts, resulting in a large rise in carcase utilisation and the value of the forequarter.

It comes after EBLEX recently took the lead on coordinating a series of mock USDA inspection visits to ensure processors are fully aware of the level of detail the USDA needs in place to help gain access to the US market.

Processor delegates are also due to hear about the development of Meat Standards Australia – a beef and sheep meat eating quality initiative – from Michael Crowley, regional manager Europe & Russia for Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA).

EBLEX’s latest consumer research in the casserole/braising sector, cut development work and key supply chain projects will also form key presentations at the event.

Dr Phil Hadley, EBLEX head of supply chain development, said: “New cut development and encouraging full carcase utilisation to help maximise returns are cornerstones of EBLEX’s work with the supply chain. Meat quality improvements remain a constant goal in maintaining and developing the reputation for English beef and lamb.

“The conference will give delegates a useful insight into what has been happening in this field in the US and Australia, as well as the opportunity to discuss other key industry issues and hear about our on-going work.”
