No doubt, this conference is the best money I won’t spend on feed this year.
This conference gets everyone under one roof, sharing best practices and offering a variety of viewpoints. You’re exposed to everyone—from the producer to the processor to the buyer — which helps you understand where to change or improve processes.
Attendees include farmers, regulators, restaurateurs, chefs, the stores that are buying these meats and reselling and consumers and there’s just nowhere else that you can get that group of people together and create the kind of educational opportunities that NC Choices has done with The Carolina Meat Conference.
This conference has radically improved my ability to speak to both customers and producers.
The Carolina Meat Conference has such a rich program and it’s actually something that I can learn from, which is something I’m always looking for going to a lot of conferences.
I’ve learned how to breakdown different muscle cuts, usage of such cuts, marketing, what opportunities exist in the niche meat sector, as well as farmer issues versus retail issues. Oh - and networking! Such valuable networking opportunities. I learned more than I can put on paper!
