The National Meat Summit Committee works to advance market opportunities, build connections, and support collective skills development and learning across many segments and scales of the U.S. meat supply chain by providing an umbrella organization to support statewide and regional convenings.
There are noticeable disconnects (perceptions, knowledge and values) across meat production and its supply chain. At the same time, there are significant opportunities resulting from changing consumer demand for high quality meat products. As a result, many state and regional groups are coming together to establish Meat Summits and Conferences. These convenings generally focus on: providing education and technical assistance to various segments of the meat industry, thereby driving innovation and solution development; and, fostering networking and collaboration across the supply chain, thus supporting new market opportunities and enhanced understanding about the realistics of ranching and processing.
