Study recruitment with free pork chops for your beginning of semester BBQ!

Posted on Tuesday, September 13th, 2022

We are recruiting U of G employees and students as participants for an in-home consumer evaluation of pork chops from pigs that differ in carcass fatness. Participants will be provided with a bag of pork chops that they will receive once they have submitted a signed consent form. Participants are asked to prepare pork chops as they normally would at home, and to then assess each pork chop for tenderness, juiciness, flavour and overall acceptability.  A brief survey will be included with the pork chops, and we ask that after sampling the pork chops,  participants complete the survey electronically using Google forms.  

How can I participate?

If you're are at least 21 of age, please send an email to and let the team know you`re interested in participating in the study!

When and where?

The pork study team will be distributing pork chops next Thursday Sept 15th, from 3:30 - 5:00pm at the University of Guelph Meat Laboratory located in ANNU (Building 70). The participants will be asked to sign the consent form before the takeout of the pork chops.

If you have any questions, please contact us at
