AMPC RD&E and Marketing Portfolio Structure
There are 3 programs in which AMPC invests to deliver RD&E and Marketing outcomes to the meat processing industry:
The Joint program is the marketing and R&D program directed at supply chain, market access and designed to develop and market products in international and domestic markets. The Joint program is the primary program for delivering shared supply chain outcomes under the red meat industry Memorandum of Understanding.
The Core R&D program, which addresses, through RD&E activities, issues facing the meat processing industry and the Australian community such as climate change research, environment, sustainability, technology and innovation, livestock management and capability.
The PIP (plant initiated project) program is designed to facilitate the implementation and adoption of R&D at the business level, enabling companies to adopt and implement specific innovations on site and to measure their effectiveness.
Our expenditure against these programs is detailed in our Annual Reports and Annual Operating Plans which, in accordance with the Statutory Funding Agreement, are lodged with the Commonwealth Government.
