Our Story

For the past 20 years I have been lucky enough to have worked in the meat industry. A career I fell into by accident and now one I could not be more passionate about. 

In 2015, after being struck by the limited number of women, particularly at board level, I founded Meat Business Women. The aim back then, was to network with other women in the industry and inspire those outside of it to recognise it as a fulfilling career destination.

Since then, Meat Business Women has grown phenomenally. Fuelled by the findings of our global gender representation reports, and the motivation of other incredible women within the industry, we're now the global professional community for women across the entire meat and food supply chain.

We represent and amplify the voice of thousands of women and are proud to partner with 35 global organisations in the UK, Ireland, New Zealand and Australia.

Our reach and influence has made substantial gains in transforming the sector's culture and image. We're on a journey to ensure that women have the support, inspiration and practises they need to reach their aspirations. We'd love for you to join us on our mission!
