All food needs to be stored and prepared safely. New developments in preservation and packaging of meat have lead to a greater variety and range of fresh meat and meat products.
Preservation and packaging can help to prevent food deterioration and food poisoning. For wise consumers, this is economical and also reduces food wastage. A sound knowledge of different preparation and cooking techniques for meat will also improve the quality and flavour of products and meals.
