AAMP Announces New Membership Benefits

A Seasoning library and assistance with marketing are two new ways that the Association helps its members.
The American Association of Meat Processors, North America's largest meat trade organization, is proud to announce new member benefits designed to help its members thrive. The Association, founded in 1939, continues to look for new ways to be of service to its members, including meat processors, suppliers, academics, and other meat industry professionals.

The new benefits include:
AAMP Seasoning Library: Bruce Armstrong, a meat scientist with more than 50 years of experience in the meat industry and the spices/seasonings sector, is offering to assist processors in developing new seasoning formulas.

As a processor, you may want to develop a new or different sausage. Where do you start? You start with AAMP's library of sausage seasonings. These seasoning formulas give you a simple starting point. The library will be set up by sausage type: Hot Dog, Bologna, Smoked Sausage, Ring Bologna, Pork Sausage, Bratwurst, Italian Sausage, International Sausage, Bacon Cure, and Ham Cure. You can replicate national brands or just get a great start on new sausage.  Additionally, Bruce is willing to develop a specific seasoning for your company, for a nominal fee, depending on the complexity of the formula.

The initial formulas in the AAMP Seasoning Library will be available later this spring. Please stay tuned to AAMP for further details.
Amplify Your Message: Our members are accomplishing great things that are certainly worthy of more attention. Unfortunately, without a marketing team, those opportunities for positive publicity often are overlooked, as the company does not have the personnel to launch a marketing push. AAMP wants to help make sure that our members get the recognition that they deserve.

If you have news about your company that you would like to share (new facility, expansion, awards, new products, etc.) but do not have the time to write a press release and distribute it, let us help Amplify Your Message. We can work with you to craft a press release and distribute it to the trade media, as well as select consumer publications and local media. Every AAMP member, whether you are a processor, supplier, or allied member, will be eligible for this benefit. Reach out to us today to see how we can help you promote your successes! Email for more information.
In addition to these new benefits, AAMP offers a number of existing benefits for its members. AAMP assists its processor members with inspection-related issues and gives them representation in Washington DC. It has a file library on its website that can be used by processors as supporting documentation in their HACCP plans. The Association also delivers the latest industry news to its members through weekly newsletters and a monthly magazine. AAMP brings together all its members at its annual convention and trade show, which takes place this year in Charleston, SC, from July 13-15. For more information about AAMP and its convention, visit
