Derry businessman Roger McCracken has launched meatconnected.com, a new website service offering an online forum, information resource and trading arena for the meat industry.

Mr. McCracken was formerly a manager with the Foyle Food Group, and summed the new online service up: “meatconnected.com is a platform for companies to market themselves to the meat industry in a way that has never been possible before. It pulls together a wide variety of information into one easy-to-access place. By having all this information available at meat professional’s fingertips, it will help them make the right decisions on a daily basis.

“The central theme of the system is based around building an online space where meat companies and professionals can market who they are, and connect with each other. This section is known as the Community and gives companies the ability to build a profile about who they are, what they have to offer and help them ‘meet’ new trading partners.”

The website is a general information source offering latest industry news, supermarket price comparisons, and sections on people, opinion, and industry events.
