Our work
UECBV provides its member federations with an acute knowledge on the EU policies related to their interest and makes sure that their voice is always taken into account at EU level.

UECBV secretariat coordinates the work of its experts through sections and committees tackling meat industry, international trade and livestock issues.

When required, an EU meat sector expert working group can draft a position paper on key issues which, once approved, are communicated to European and international decision-makers aiming at shaping legislative and non-legislative developments impacting on the industry.
