The Certified Angus Beef brand has joined over 25 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 and opportunities for individuals in the field of meat science.  AMSA’s Sustaining Partners program recognizes the organizations and institutions that provide significant financial and logistical contributions for the products and services offered by the organization.

“The Certified Angus Beef brand carries a rich tradition of leadership and value within the industry. AMSA looks forward to exploring new opportunities with this company and all of our sustaining partners as we continue to enrich AMSA’s programs,” states Thomas Powell, AMSA Executive Director.

For more than 30 years, the Certified Angus Beef brand has been a symbol of success, reflected in its network of partners around the globe. The brand has brought together the best ranchers and the finest restaurants and retailers to accomplish a single goal – to provide consumers superior beef.  The Certified Angus Beef brand from day one has relied on science to identify the highest quality beef, ensuring consumers always enjoy the best.

“We appreciate the expertise the AMSA brings to meat professionals and ultimately America’s dinner tables,” says John Stika, president of the Certified Angus Beef brand. “This is a highly relevant, unbiased organization whose services and members actively support and ensure the safety and quality of our nation’s meat supply.”

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