International meeting on Beef and Lamb carcass grading to underpin consumer satisfaction

The government of Ireland, in collaboration with Teagasc, will host a UNECE workshop focusing on eating quality and the implementation of UNECE standards. The workshop will also be supported by Meat Standards Australia.

The organising committee invites you to an International meeting on Beef and Lamb carcass grading to underpin consumer satisfaction.


To facilitate further International collaboration on sensory evaluation and industry systems underpinning carcass grading for consumer satisfaction of cooked beef and lamb.

When: Thursday 10th – Friday 11th August, 2017

Where : Teagasc Food Research Centre, Ashtown, Dublin 15, Ireland.


This workshop is being run before the 2017 ICoMST and is, in part, a follow up to similar workshops held in the Republic of Korea and France associated with the 56th and 61st ICoMST respectively. The 63rd ICoMST meeting will be held in Cork (Sunday 13th – Friday 18th August, 2017) and is an ideal opportunity to bring together those researchers with an interest in beef and lamb grading for eating quality. Accordingly the invitation to attend the 2 day workshop is based on the assumption invitees can arrange their own transportation and accommodation. The conference is open to any scientist and meat professional interested by the prediction of eating quality of beef and lamb at the consumer level, however numbers will be limited to approximately 200.
