We’re Hiring: Full-time Outreach Specialist

LogoAAMP is an international organization whose 1,300 members include meat and poultry processors, slaughterers, caterers, food service companies, wholesalers, retailers, suppliers, and consultants to the meat and poultry industry. There are 29 state, regional, and provincial associations of meat processors that are also affiliated with AAMP. The majority of our members are small and very small businesses, with most of them being family-owned and operated. While the total group of small and very small meat processors in the U.S. represents about 5% of the total meat production volume in the U.S., those same types of meat processing businesses constitute approximately 95% of the total number of meat processing businesses in the U.S. As a national meat trade association, we are proud that we have members who own businesses of all sizes, but the “backbone” of our organization remains the small and very small independently-owned firms across the United States.
