Group: Expanding meat processing capabilities to meet the needs of consumers, processors, and diverse cultural preferences

Welcome

The meat processing group chose several ways to build infrastructure for local meat processing and value added enterprises:

1. Job creation through public/private partnerships, training, retraining and building the labor force needed for meat processing facilities, particularly for smaller scale producers.

2. Document and educate regarding processing procedures that meet the needs of emerging cultural groups in Ohio.

3. Identify and network with processors who may be willing to change and adapt to these emerging needs.

Article about a Red Meat Market which is a branded meat service. Bundling with other products or CSA programs is certainly an alternative.
