Limestone Coast Red Meat Cluster Project

 

What is it?

The Limestone Coast Red Meat Cluster is building industry linkages and promoting a culture of collaboration to ensure a vibrant future for the region's red meat sector

 

Industry competition, when combined with collaboration, is proven to develop:

2.         Obtain detailed regional data and analysis to demonstrate the Limestone Coast region’s role and strengths in the red meat industry

3.         Instigate individual discussions with processors

4.         Keep the wider industry informed of project activities and invite input.
