Who Are We

Based in Washington, DC. , the American Meat Institute (AMI) is the nation’s oldest and largest association representing the U.S. meat and poultry industry. AMI’s members produce fresh and processed meat and poultry products that bear the most popular brands in the marketplace today.

For more than 100 years, AMI has been a resource to foodservice operators, grocers and consumers on a variety of nutrition, safety and animal health and welfare issues. AMI employs experts in food safety, nutrition, animal welfare, animal health and meat cookery who monitor new developments and prepare materials like Meat Matters series designed to give consumers the information they need in an understandable and meaningful way.

Our brochures have been reviewed by government, industry and academic experts, as appropriate, to ensure that the information we are providing is accurate.
