AMIE wishes to assist black importers and exporters in entering the market and assist with entry into the distribution chain of all proteins. The movement of meat across borders is a complex business, which results in few companies succeeding in this field. To ensure a sustainable development strategy, the AMIE Academy will be the vehicle driving industry transformation.

Sustainable transformation of the meat import and export industry is a critically important endeavour. True transformation can only take place with a net positive impact campaign. It is not something that can or will happen over night. Read here about the business case for skills development. 


Calling on stakeholders in the meat and poultry value chain, to contribute to a sustainable and robust industry.

Benefits to you:
