A number of improvements have been made to MLA’s Market Information Statistics Database. This database is considered the red meat industry’s best source of data and has over 430,000 users each year. There were a few notable issues with the database – duplicated information, continual bugs and multiple members of the insights team required to manually enter data into the import files which became an inefficient use of the analysts’ time.
The new MLA statistics page resolves these issues with features such as autonomous reporting, data validation, interactive reports with dynamic visuals, expanded industry data and greater user insights. These changes have received positive feedback from various stakeholders around the industry.
