Australia: New pork CRC launched

12-12-2011 | |

Officially launching the CRC for High Integrity Australian Pork, chairman of the CRC Committee, Mr Neville Stevens AO, said it had the potential to build quality jobs and products for Australia.

Speaking in Adelaide, on the weekend of the new Pork CRC’s inaugural annual conference, he noted that the CRC was well positioned to address the challenges of environment, health and welfare and developing innovative carbon friendly solutions.
Describing it as a noble investment in the future of the industry and regions around Australia, he was confident it would emulate the success of the first Pork CRC.
Mr Stevens closed by wishing the Pork CRC and the Australasian Pig Science Association (APSA) every success in their endeavours, after pointing out that the link between APSA and the Pork CRC went back to the beginning of the Pork CRC in 2005.
The launch of the new Pork CRC was held in conjunction with the 2011 APSA scientific meetings and preceded the A.C. Dunkin Memorial Lecture, “Was the Co-operative Research Centre (CRC) for an Internationally Competitive Australian Pork Industry worth the investment?”, delivered by Pork CRC Chairman, Dr John Keniry.
