Editor's note: The following article appeared in the North American Meat Association's (NAMA) Lean Trimmings newsletter.

NAMA is pleased to announce a new website for meat industry regulatory guidance at  www.meatexperts.com. The new NAMA Meat Experts is a site for meat company managers and others to get answers to meat regulation related questions.

The site invites visitor participation via ‘Ask the Experts’ inquiries and provides a forum for ongoing discussion on each inquiry. The goal is to build a knowledgebase about meat inspection, food safety and industry regulatory oversight based on incoming questions and the staff’s expertise.

An app for iPhone and Android with which visitors will be able to access the knowledgebase at NAMA Meat Experts, and also to send in new inquiries directly from their smart phones, will be released later this spring.
