South Africa's red meat value-chain is highly intricate. The umbrella organisation is the Red Meat Industry Forum (RMIF), under which the Red Meat Industry Trust falls. The latter manages the funds transferred from the pre- 1994 Meat Board, as well as the Red Meat Research and Development Trust, the semi-government -owned SA Meat Industry Company, the Meat Statutory Measure Service, and the Red Meat Levy Admin. Grass roots-level industry organisations are the Red Meat Producers' Organisation (RPO) and the National Emergent Red Meat Producers' Organisation (Nerpo), which collectively have about 70 000 members. Other organisations include the Skins, Hides and Leather Council, the SA Feedlot Association, the SA Federation of Livestock Agents, the Association of Meat Importers and Exporters, the SA National Consumers' Union, the Red Meat Abattoir Association, the SA Pork Producers' Organisation (Sappo), the National Federation of Meat Traders, and the Meat Distributors and Allied Workers Union of SA.
