Examining potential for automated inspection in meat production
An in-depth industry workshop has been organised by the University of Lincoln’s National Centre for Food Manufacturing as part of a pioneering project to evaluate the potential for automated inspection procedures in poultry and red meat production.
Project Title: FSA Project SEP-EOI-02 – Exploring the Potential for Technology to Support Agency Objectives in Meat Operations
Event: Project Dissemination and Industrial Feedback Workshop
Date: 23rd February 2017
Location: Think Tank, University of Lincoln
This workshop has been organised by the National Centre for Food Manufacturing (NCFM) and Food Refrigeration & Process Engineering Research Centre (FRPERC) as part of the Food Standards Agency project SEP-EOI-02: Exploring the Potential for Technology to Support Agency Objectives in Meat Operations.
The purpose of this project has been to use a science-based approach to evaluate the potential for automated inspection procedures in poultry and red meat production, focusing on the implications for public health.
Through this workshop, the project team are now seeking opinion from industry bodies and stakeholders on the potential for implementation of such technologies.
The project outcome will be published at the end of the project/after the FSA has reviewed and approved the project report.
