YEMCo - Young European Meat Committee

The Young European Meat Committee of the UECBV, the European Livestock and Meat Trading Union.


President Eva Moser


The ‛Young European Meat Committee’ (YEMCo) is part of the European Livestock and Meat Trades Union (UECBV).
YEMCo serves as the leading ‛think tank’ of over 400 young executives and managers of European commercial and industrial firms engaged in livestock and meat business. Hosting conferences twice a year, informal dinners and other network events, YEMCo is a privileged prime forum for exchanging ideas and experiences amongst meat business leaders at European level.
These conferences allow young managers to meet and analyze all the key areas in relation to the meat industry (e.g. consumption pattern, retail, technology, international trade, food safety etc.) serving their interest in addressing competitiveness through a sustainable practice in their business.


YEMCo’s activity establishes a wide network of young professionals in the European meat industry, allowing for cross-border cooperation and greater business opportunities.

In 2011, YEMCo celebrated its 10th anniversary.


Some interesting facts on YEMCo conferences:

  • Number: since its launch in Sept. 2001, this is the 22nd YEMCo conference, always counting between 60-90 participants, with highest levels reached in Dublin and former one in Bologna (around 100).
  • Friends of YEMCo: the number of friends since 2005 has raised from 189 to, now, in 2013, 409, and registration requests keep on going.
  • Locations: YEMCo conferences have already been organised twice in IE, FR, NL, BE, UK and DE, once in IT and Switzerland and this year for the first time in the USA.
