Objective carcase measurement for Wagyu has been acknowledged as a required step forward to give more precise data, particularly in relation to intramuscular fat content and fineness and ribeye area.
The camera technology developed by Meat Image Japan is ideally suited to Wagyu carcase measurement and the AWA has secured a partnership to be the exclusive reseller for the camera in Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.
The aim of the Association is to place 10 cameras in the industry by the end of the year.
Expressions of Interest are now open for members of the AWA to lodge an application to procure the camera.
This completed document is to be returned to the AWA by 11 pm AEST 21st September 2018 in pdf format via email. An acknowledgement of your application will be sent at the closure of the EOI application process.
