Everyone related to the meat industry has something to benefit from North American Meat Association
Packers, processors and others with grants of inspection utilize the regulatory and technical assistance, as well as HACCP support and education, provided by NAMA’s regulatory arm. Equipment manufacturers benefit from the contacts, advertising and excitement generated by the association and its tradeshow, MEATXPO. Buyers, sellers and aficionados of meat all benefit from The NAMP Meat Buyers Guide®.
Consultants tap into the strong networking possibilities, clear directory and friendly inclusiveness. Academics and educators utilize our information services, our weekly newsletters and our website, while the NAMA Scholarship Foundation helps students find funding to continue their education in meat science and related fields.

“A major reason a company should join NAMA is to survive now, and to provide future generations in the meat trade with the experience and opportunities to learn from today’s packers and processors about how to create solutions.”
— Mike Satzow, North Country Smokehouse
“Our industry gets attacked on a variety of issues — obesity, ‘pink slime’, whatever. Now we have one voice instead of two separate voices. We as an association need to be a proactive voice to consumers, not a reactive voice. We need to show consumers what we are doing to create safe, legal foods.”
— Jeff Saval, Deli Brands of America
“I feel this new association will give the industry the voice and direction that it needs as we continue to address the many challenges our industry faces in producing safe, high quality products.”
— Bob Jensen, Jensen Meats
