This report summarises discussions with a small number of meat industry firms about the effects of policy on their innovation activities, and their recommendations for future policy changes. Although firms, like researchers and policymakers, lack strong definitions and measurement procedures for innovation, they were able to list and describe their innovation processes and outcomes. Firms expressed some dissatisfaction with innovation policy, and were able to make a number of recommendations for change. Notably, this included its linkage to an overall strategy that emphasises international competitiveness and other concerns of the firms. Recommendations also include removing several of the favourable conditions currently enjoyed by small firms, and called for amendment or removal of the repayment requirement.
