The principal objective is to provide insight in how northern/alpine pastures and production systems influence meat quality in lamb, and how such a quality can be used to promote Norwegian lamb meat on a national and an international market.
|Prosjektleder:||Odd Jarl Borch|
The main objective of this project is to achieve knowledge on how northern and alpine growing conditions influence lamb meat quality, and how such a quality can be exploited in marketing nationally and internationally. The project is expected to identify how northern and alpine climates influence forage quality of pasture plants, including studies on fatty acid and antioxidant composition, and whether this influences lamb meat quality. Both sensory characteristics and immaterial quality dimensions like food traditions and region of origin will be related to the possibility of promoting Norwegian lamb meat (fenalår) on the national and international market.
The project is collaboration between The Norwegian Crop Research Institute, Nordland Research Institute/ The Bodø Graduate School of Business, The Norwegian Food Research Institute and the food processing companies Gilde Norsk Kjøtt, Thulefjord AS, Aron Mat AS and Voss kjøttindustri.
