Course content

Working with the UKs meat industry, and with the support of The Worshipful Company of Butchers, Harper Adams University has developed a Postgraduate Certificate course in Meat Business Management designed to provide staff from the meat industry with the knowledge and skills required to increase the effectiveness, efficiency and profitability of their employers businesses and to develop their own career potential within the meat industry.

The UKs meat industry represents one of the most important sectors of the country food supply system and a key component of the agri-food supply chain. Many factors limit and threaten the success and security of the meat industry, and not least the ability of the industry to attract and retain staff with the right knowledge and skills. Being able to develop and maintain a resource of appropriately experienced, knowledgeable and qualified supervisory and management staff must be a primary strategic objective for any meat business as the success and growth of such businesses depends on possessing capable and appropriately educated staff. Equally, the long term stability of meat businesses relies on effective and achievable management succession planning which in itself requires access to staff who have the ability to grow into more senior roles and become the business leaders of the future.
