The Australian red meat and livestock industry has had a long track record of achievement and success by working together. RMAC, its member Peak Industry Councils and the industry’s three research and development corporations will continue this by annually assessing the industry’s progress towards achieving the 26 success indicators identified in Red Meat 2030 using a purpose built, repeatable reporting framework from 2023.

This process will enable the identification of any gaps or delays in achieving the Red Meat 2030 strategic priorities and help to address by pinpointing where further activity and attention is required. Performance assessments outcomes will be clearly articulated to internal and external stakeholders to maintain responsibilities and accountabilities across the industry and ensure the effective roll out of the strategy and its review and refinement over its life.
