Cape Town, South Africa will host the World Meat Congress 2008: A joint meeting of the 17th World Meat Congress and the 54th International Congress of Meat Science and Technology.

The meat industry in South Africa dates back to as early as the 15th century when the Portuguese bartered copper trinkets and other articles with the Hottentots for the fresh meat which was so necessary on the long sea voyage to India. When, after a century and a half, the Dutch began their Eastern trade, the Cape of Good Hope became a convenient refreshment station for the Dutch East India Company.
