Winpak has joined over 40 other companies and institutions as a Sustaining Partner of the American Meat Science Association (AMSA). For more than 50 years, the AMSA has relied on support from partners to maintain its ability to provide community and professional development programs as well as opportunities for individuals in the field of meat science. AMSA’s Sustaining Partner program recognizes the organizations and institutions that provide significant financial and logistical contributions for the products and services offered by the organization.

“We look forward to working with Winpak. Their packaging expertise will be a valuable addition for our membership and the possibilities for careers for meat science students are tremendous” states Thomas Powell, AMSA Executive Director.

Winpak, established in 1975, is part of a global packaging group with ten manufacturing facilities in North America. They offer high-quality flexible and rigid packaging materials and related innovative packaging machines used primarily for food, beverage, and health care applications.  Winpak’s partnership with their sister company Wipak, one of Europe’s leading manufacturers of packaging materials, allows them to access the expertise of packaging professionals worldwide and to offer a broad range of products and packaging solutions globally.

“Winpak is passionate about creating packages that excel in consistent performance and quality, but are also sustainable for the environment.  Partnering with AMSA greatly enables Winpak to accomplish this goal.  This happens through collaboration, education and working with the future leaders in the meat industry.  We are very excited and proud to partner with AMSA,” said Greg Jones, Winpak Division’s Sales Director.

The Sustaining Partnership program enables participating companies and institutions to acknowledge and further align under a common goal to foster the principles of meat science and technology. Our Sustaining Partners have enhanced AMSA programs such as student development, scientific information outreach and building the global network of meat science professionals. The program includes five levels of partnership – Diamond, Platinum, Gold, Silver, and Bronze.
