Message from the IMS President
The International Meat Secretariat is taking a pro-active stance on the range of issues facing the global meat industry. One of the biggest challenges is related to the environment. In this respect, the IMS Sustainable Meat Committee is playing an important role as a catalyst for international co-operation.
I believe that the meat industry must work together to demonstrate its strong commitment to sustainably meeting market demand. I also believe that together, we can meet the multiple objectives of economic development, climate change and food security through increased productivity and resource efficiency.
IMS Joins Effort to Combat Child Hunger & Malnutrition
The IMS Executive Council has formalized its support for The Six-Second Project by making a donation to the non-profit organization. The Six-Second Project is partnering with the global meat industry to help fight child hunger and malnutrition and, along with its official media sponsor, GlobalMeatNews.com, is challenging all sectors of the industry to join the effort. “The Six-Second Project has challenged us to unite in support of a noble cause, and we accept this challenge,” said Arturo Llavallol, IMS President. “With our donation, we invite our industry colleagues to join us in helping raise money to find solutions for hungry and malnourished children. The more who donate to The Six-Second Project, the bigger it can grow, and the more solutions we can find,” Llavallol emphasized.
