Meat Business Women

AMIC is the exclusive Australian territory partner and is committed to actively supporting women in the meat industry by encouraging women to join our industry and providing networking and mentor opportunities for those already within our industry.

Meat Business Women

Meat Business Women (MBW) is a women’s advocacy networking group founded in the United Kingdom by Laura Ryan – former Strategy Director at AHDB Beef & Lamb, and Pam Brook  – former meat press editor.  The success of MBW led to an international  partnership signing with AMIC in September 2018 to bring together women from across the meat supply chain, including processors, wholesalers, retailers and smallgoods manufacturers to future proof our industry.

Key Objectives

MBW targets women working within the post farm-gate meat supply chain with three key objectives:

  • Develop the image, culture and landscape of the meat industry to make it more attractive to female talent.
  • Nurture new female entrants into the sector through networking, education and mentoring.
  • Skilfully improve networking.

These objectives are realised through networking events, conferences, mentoring courses and sponsorship of educational opportunities.  Although the initiative will be driven by AMIC and AMIC Members, activities will be open to ALL women working in the supply chain.
