January 20, 2017
The Meat Institute has released a new app called MyMeatUp to assist consumers, particularly millennials, in becoming more comfortable and confident when purchasing meat products in the grocery store. The app is available for download on both Apple and Android devices and is the only free app available with a full guide to beef, pork, lamb and veal cuts found in grocery stores, and also includes cooking tips and recipes.
In addition to the cuts guide, it features a searchable glossary of terms frequently used on meat and poultry product labels, including natural, grass-fed, antibiotic-free and no hormones added, among others. The app also addresses common questions about industry including antibiotic use in animal agriculture, animal welfare practices, environmental concerns and nutrition facts. The app also has pages with food safety and preparation tips, along with a video guide to using a meat thermometer.
The app can be downloaded by going to your App Store.
