How AAMP works for small processors
AAMP membership provides professional support and growth you won't find anywhere else.
The American Association of Meat Processors (AAMP) has grown considerably over the past few years. Enhanced member services, a continued partnership with affiliate organizations, and the tireless work of member volunteers have made this possible. AAMP’s more than 1,300 members are the true heart of the organization. Members enhance their business opportunities by learning and sharing with each other through various networking opportunities. The learning opportunities members receive at AAMP will show a very real and measurable return on that investment.

Fact Sheet Brochures
As consumers demand more information about the foods they eat, meat processors need tools to answer those questions. AAMP has its members with three fact sheet brochures, to hand out to customers. They are Grass Fed vs. Grain Fed; Hormones and Meat; Nitrates vs. Nitrites; and the newest, Genetic Engineering and Livestock Production. Each brochure gives facts about the topics in an informative and educational way, allowing consumers to make informed food choices. To order hard copies of the brochure, call AAMP at 877-877-0168, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
