Proud New Partner

Meet the meat industry at the first ever IPPE

The American Meat Institute (AMI) is proud to be a partner in this year’s International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE). The trade show is a unique opportunity to bring together representatives from the meat, poultry and feed industries under one umbrella to share new technologies, education and networking from feed through distribution.

AMI represents the interests of packers and processors of beef, pork, lamb, veal and turkey products and their suppliers throughout North America. Together, AMI members produce 95% of the beef, pork, lamb and veal products and 70% of the turkey products in the United States. The Institute provides legislative, regulatory, public relations, technical, scientific and educational services to the meat and poultry packing and processing industry.

The International Meat Expo (IME), sponsored by AMI, is the premier U.S. trade show featuring the latest in equipment and supplies for processing and packaging red meat products. Formerly known as the International Meat, Poultry and Seafood Industry Convention and Expo, it is a natural fit for us to collaborate with the International Poultry Expo (IPE) and the International Feed Expo (IFE), under the IPPE name. IPPE’s goal is to forge the world’s premier trade show focused on the meat, poultry and feed industries, with opportunities for learning and conducting business for all aspects of the business, from farm to fork.

On the IPPE show floor, you will find more than 1,100 exhibitors covering 420,000 square feet. The exhibitors cover a wide range of meat, poultry, and feed packing and processing technologies, equipment and supplies. We expect more than 25,000 industry leaders in Atlanta during the week visiting the show floor and attending workshops.

We have put together an extensive education lineup in conjunction with IPE and IFE. There is something for everyone with programs ranging from one-hour technical workshops to full day conferences. Session topics vary from maintenance and sanitation to social media. The programs are open to attendees of any of the shows.

Of course, we also want to give attendees a chance to network with colleagues within and across industries. We hope that networking sessions on the show floor on Tuesday from 4-6 p.m. and Wednesday night at the Georgia Aquarium will help foster new relationships amongst professionals spanning the feed, poultry and meat industries.  

If you are a feed industry professional working directly with the meat packing and processing industry for the first time, we look forward to the opportunity to get to know you and learn more about your work as well. Together we can make the IPPE the only show professionals in the meat, poultry and feed industries need.

Southeast Asia will have to embrace genuine trade liberalization, in all aspects — sanitary and phytosanitary (SPS) measures and import authorizations, in addition to tariff removals — if it wishes to see its full potential for food security and economic prosperity. Currently, non-tariff trade barriers (NTTBs) are becoming the norm, as nations are willing to liberalize on paper, but not on the ground.
