Welcome to the CMSA Website

The Canadian Meat Science Association, Canada's national meat science association, was created in 1985 and now includes representatives from all sectors of the Canadian meat industry, from academia and from government. The CMSA aims to facilitate a greater understanding of the science of meat and other edible constituents of animals of all species to address the needs of the largest food processing industry in Canada.

The CMSA strives to help its membership in professional development by providing a forum for the exchange and dissemination of new developments in meat science research, teaching and application of new technology in the meat industry.

All with an interest in the science of meat and meat products (including students and corporations) are eligible to join the CMSA.
