Decoding Meat Labels: What does it really mean?
Join us for an online webinar on how to decipher all of the various meat labels that consumers are faced with.
Date: June 30, 2020
Time: 6 p.m.
These days, consumers are looking for a reliable source and more information on their food, where it comes from and how it’s produced. Regarding meats, there are questions related to animal welfare, environmental impacts, what the animals were fed, food safety and consistent availability among others, which can be challenging to navigate given the number of claims associated with these products and the current environment we are faced with while dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic.
N.C. Cooperative Extension of Gaston County is going to address the vast scope of definitions used by various producers and the third party certifying agencies that producers can use to market their meat and what that actually means for the end consumer.
N.C. Cooperative Extension will also try to address the various ways that consumers can purchase meats from local producers and some of the challenges that local producers are faced with in these uncertain times, in terms, of meeting current consumer demands.
Registration is required for this event.
