MEAT and Livestock Australia (MLA) organised an Australian Meat Product Knowledge Training Workshop for professionals in the food service sector as well as importers, retail butchers and buyers in Brunei Darussalam.
The workshop focused on providing essential information on what Australian meat importers, retailers and end-users should know and share with their customers.
It took place at the Rizqun International Hotel and attracted a large turn out yesterday.
The Australian High Commissioner to Brunei Darussalam, Todd Mercer, in his speech said that during his visit to MLA offices in Sydney in July, he had the opportunity to discuss MLA’s long-standing commitment to the Bruneian market.
“When I first arrived in Brunei two years ago, I was very pleased to see that Australian meat was readily available on the supermarket shelves. MLA can take a great deal of credit for that,” he said.
He added that Australian producers, with the support of MLA, have a proven track record of providing the highest quality beef and lamb, which adheres to Brunei’s specific health and Halal requirements.
He added that it was worth noting that MLA also plays a key role in ensuring that the trade in livestock from Australia to Brunei flows smoothly.
The workshop is the latest initiative of MLA aimed at supporting the meat and livestock trade between the two countries through the provision of training and technical support.
MLA’s initiatives include advice on animal nutrition management and on a range of topics relating to live animal exports.
Todd Mercer also said the Australian Government, through its economic diplomacy agenda, is committed to promoting trade and investment flows as a means of boosting global prosperity.
Meat and Livestock Australia Limited delivers marketing, research and development services for Australia’s cattle, sheep and goat producers.
MLA also creates opportunities for livestock supply chains to build demand and boost productivity.
