It is proposed that Biologic Pty Ltd would invite major processors of Kangaroo meat (for the Australian pet market) along with petfood supplier companies to complete a confidential survey. This would seek baseline data about the levels of sodium metabisulphie (SMBS) and exogenous thiamine currently added to kangaroo meat, through the supply chain.

1. To assess the relationship between various concentrations of SO2 and thiamine concentrations in kangaroo meat over the normal product shelf life (deemed 28 days).2. To explore the the degree of thiamine supplementation necessary to counter the inactivation of thiamine in kangaroo meats preserved with SO2, to ensure that the minimum nutrient level for thiamine in pet meat is met at levels consistent with current industry practice.
