International Meat Product Competition Coming to UW-Madison
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 12/23/2015

For the first time ever, the International IFFA Meat Quality Competition will be held on American soil and the University of Wisconsin-Madison has been chosen to play host. The American Association of Meat Processors, in partnership with the German Butchers' Association, and the UW Meat Science Extension is holding the first ever contest next month.

The event will be held at the campus' Institute for Discovery building on January 11-13. This competition is held in conjunction with the 2016 IFFA Show, the leading international trade fair for processing, packaging, and sales in the meat industry occurring every three years, in Frankfurt, Germany.

During the IFFA, over 2,500 different products submitted by butchers and meat processors from all over the world are evaluated by GBA judges for a variety of quality attributes.

The judging will be done by the same German judges as those used for the competition taking place at the IFFA show in Frankfurt in May 2016.

Organizers say the partnership was formed due to the increased issues non-European Union butchers have had with submitting their products into the German show.
