As 2021 begins to draw to a close, let’s look back on some notable (and positive!) events that have occurred around the globe: • The first double arm and shoulder transplant was successfully performed in France. • The first Malaria vaccine was endorsed by the World Health Organization. • The world-renowned Eurovision Song Contest was finally held after being postponed since 2020. • The African Continental Free Trade Area came into effect. • The Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons came into effect. • ‘Chimera embryos’ were successfully created in Japan, by injecting human stem cells into monkey embryos. • Einstein’s Theory of General Relativity was confirmed after light was directly observed from behind a black hole for the first time in history. • NASA landed their Mars 2020 mission after seven months of space travel. • The first powered flight on Mars was achieved by NASA’s Ingenuity helicopter. • Earth Day was marked clearly by world leaders during the virtual Climate Change Summit. Our world continues to experience exponential growth in technological research, advancement, and innovation. When we look at the above events and achievements, which are just a small excerpt from a plethora of international successes seen so far in 2021, it is clear that the way forward will be paved by our use and development of technology. Technological Innovation in Industries of all kinds! Business View Oceania has long been in support of businesses and organizations making appropriate use of technology to further their respective agendas. During this issue, we highlight innovative ventures undertaken by companies and associations in our Food and Beverage, Facilities Management, Clean and Green, and Manufacturing sectors. Starting off our issue in the Food and Beverage sector is New Zealand’s Meat Industry Association (MIA). MIA is an incorporated society that supports processors, exporters, and associate members throughout New Zealand’s red meat industry as their peak governing body.
