We are always working to build brighter futures for our customers, our people, and our industry. The partnerships we’ve built with universities and leading industry bodies in Australia and around the world give us the opportunity to shape the future of our industry, and to give back to the people within it.
Our partnership with Texas Tech University’s (TTU) Department of Animal and Food Sciences started in 2017 to address the real-world challenges impacting local and global industries, and to support the research of the International Center for Food Industry and Excellence.
By supporting meat science and food safety research, and creating internship opportunities, our TTU partnership is helping advance food safety, value-added processing, nutrition, outreach, and education.
A strong safety culture has always been important to us at Teys, which is why we want to play our part in developing the future leaders in health and safety. Our long-standing partnership with the University of Queensland gives health and rehabilitation students the opportunity for placements across our operations. This provides them with access to our health and safety teams and invaluable hands-on experience.
At Teys, we’re working hard to create future meat industry leaders. Our partnership with Charles Sturt University involves students gaining practical experience in a number of livestock-based programs, including welcoming students to our Wagga Wagga site.
Our Naracoorte team works closely with a PhD student from Adelaide University to help her complete the research component of her studies. This access helps her to apply her knowledge and understanding at the frontline of the industry in a practical way. It means they can see the impact of their education and insights first hand. This will hopefully be the first of many.
The partnership between Teys and The University of Nebraska-Lincoln Food Processing Center began in 2020 to support our focus on best-in-class food innovation in the protein space.
With the expertise at the University’s Food Processing Center, the Teys team is able to leverage the latest in food research and creativity to bring to life new product concepts. The outcomes will enable our customers to meet the changing needs of consumers with on-trend value added protein products that leverage the very latest food production techniques.
Fostering the careers of those entering our industry
Our long term partnership with the Australian Intercollegiate Meat Judging Association allows us to promote the many career opportunities within the meat industry to Charles Sturt University and CQ University students.
As part of this partnership, we also have the opportunity to host the Association’s annual tertiary judging competition in Wagga Wagga, as well as fund the Northern ICMJ program in Rockhampton as principal sponsor with Meat & Livestock Australia. These events attract university students from around Australia and the world.
We are active members of our industry, and are always looking to do our part to help move our industry forward. Our memberships, partnerships and industry involvement, give us the opportunity to help develop and promote responsible practices and innovation across the entire supply chain.
