  • ABEL OLIVERA
    Jensen Meats
    CEO

    As a company CEO, I think it's very important for my staff to network with the industry, and to be able to know the resources that are available to them through NAMI. I want my staff to feel they could pick up the phone and call anyone from the association in regards to any help they need, either on the QA side, regulation side, labor side. I think we have a lot of resources at NAMI to meet that need.

  • JOHN VATRI
    Cardinal Meat Specialists
    VP Operations & Safety

    The Meat Institute's been invaluable for our little company. Just recently, we had some product detained at the border, something we couldn't move with CFI, and I called up Norm with NAMI, and within two hours stuff was moved. And so, for us, it's having that really easy access to regulatory help.

  • CHRIS CARROLL

    CEO/President

    I think, we all share similar problems, and having a voice at the NAMI table really allows us to listen, to share and to learn. What makes the Institute unique is the people. And the meat industry, the protein industry is a tough business, but really the relationships that you're able to develop, the networking that takes place within the NAMI membership.
