A Clear Image of Wagyu

MIJ-30 Wagyu camera in action lowres

The level of interest in the first round of Expression of Interest for the MIJ-30 objective carcase measurement camera has warranted the Association to open Round 2.

Employment of the MIJ objective carcase camera enhances the accuracy of marbling and rib eye area measurements to provide the supply chain with greater confidence in meat quality for Australian Wagyu.

Initial results suggest that some Australian Wagyu carcases can rate well above a marble score of 9+. With more accurate assessment, brand owners will be in a position to market higher marble score Wagyu at the ultra-premium end of the market.

Now open, Round 2 of the EoI is available for application for those interested in purchasing the camera. To read more about how the camera operates click here.
