Welcome to this week's newsletter

Editorial: Focus On Sustainability And Safety At Meat Exhibition The China International Meat Industry Exhibition opened in Beijing this week.

In the opening seminar, president of the International Meat Secretariat, Paddy Moore said that meat consumption is expected to grow by 40 per cent by 2025, with markets emerging in Asian and South America.

He said that this growth is driven by changing diet patterns, rising standards of living, urbanisation and population growth.

Speaking at the summit, representatives of the Chinese government confirmed their commitment to backing the sustainable and hygienic production of meat and food products.

Following on from this, the China Meat Association has set up a new organisation to oversee food safety issues in the meat industry.

The committee will work with government organisations, agencies and meat industry experts to overcome food safety issues that have been affecting the meat industry.

In the US, the Food and Drug Administration has announced that it is considering limits on growth-promoting drugs.
