Meat Industry Ireland (MII) is the Ibec sector association which represents the primary beef, pork and lamb processing facilities located in the Republic of Ireland. MII also provides support to Food Drink Ireland (FDI) in its representation of the primary poultry processing sector.

MII promotes the interests of its members and the Irish primary meat processing sector by interfacing on behalf of its members with government departments, state agencies, European institutions, and other stakeholders across the sector.

Service to Members

MII provides a wide variety of services for its members including policy development and advocacy, and up-to-date information on all technical, legislative developments and policy changes that may affect the meat industry.

With the active participation and support of our members we cultivate our work programme through regular interaction via committee and working group meetings, thematic events, webinars, and industry related campaigns. We also provide support to our members in the operation of their enterprises where appropriate along with providing information relating to the sector and briefing positions on issues of relevance to the meat industry in Ireland.
