OAKLAND, Calif. – The North American Meat Association (NAMA) debuted a new web site for meat industry regulatory guidance called www.meatexperts.com.

The new site offers meat company operators and other stakeholders the opportunity to ask questions and get answers to meat regulations-related questions. Visitors to the site can participate in ‘Ask the Experts’ inquiries. The site also provides a forum for ongoing discussion on each inquiry. NAMA said the goal is to build a "knowledgebase" about meat inspection, food-safety and industry regulatory oversight based on incoming questions and the NAMA staff’s expertise.

The association plans to release an app for iPhone and Android smartphones which will enable visitors to access NAMA Meat Experts, and also to submit new inquiries directly from their mobile phones.
