Meat Business Women

United States of America (USA)

Your Territory Partner

Supporting the USA we have two of the leading trading associations in our sector. The first assocation, NAMI, is a national trade association that represents the companies that process 95% of red meat and 70% of turkey products in the USA, and includes their suppliers as well.

USMEF is the most vertically integrated trade association in the USA meat and livestock industry. It represents beef and veal producers and feeders, pork producers and feeders, lamb producers and feeders, packers and processors, purveyors and traders, oilseed producers, feed-grain producers, farm organisations, and supply and service organisations. Simply put, USMEF is “putting USA meat on the world’s table.”

Your Committee Members

The USA Executive Committee consists of 11 women, spanning the wide range of meat industry roles in the USA. Five sectors are represented: industry; academia; allied; media; association.

Global Sponsors

Our Meat Business Women sponsors represent some of the most progressive and innovative organisations within the global meat supply chain.

Their support provides our members with exclusive insights from worldwide brands in the form of executive interviews, webinar engagement, and market development predictions. These mediums demonstrate their commitment to gender equality.

They participate at both global and local events, and via membership content mediums.

Local Sponsors

Our local sponsors are valuable in-country partners that work with our local committees to organise and enable our chapter events. Providing much needed financial support for these local events, they also share their industry expertise and commitment to gender equality.

“From the advent of refrigerated rail cars and boxed beef to the present-day task of feeding a growing world population, America has a strong and deep history with all things meat. Women have been and continue to be a huge part of that. One look across the fabrication lines in a U.S. packing plant or at the demographic of the graduating classes of our meat science university programs coast to coast clearly shows that. But there are gaps in certain positions in the industry. The talent pool is here, so we ask, what are the hurdles and what are the resources needed to allow women to thrive – professionally, culturally, and personally?”
