WASHINGTON, DC – The North American Meat Institute (NAMI) today awarded SugarCreek Packing, Marcus Technologies, Tyson Foods, and SuKarne with NAMI’s inaugural Health and Wellness Awards at the Environment, Labor and Safety+ Conference.

“NAMI members have always made significant contributions to the communities where they operate and beyond,” said NAMI President and CEO Julie Anna Potts. “Whether member companies are expanding childcare options, improving healthcare services or donating meat and poultry products, we are grateful for the leadership shown by these award winners.”

The Health and Wellness Awards, which were given out in three categories this year, were developed to recognize companies that have made tangible efforts to improve health and wellness in their local and corporate communities. The three categories are:

1. Community Wellness (Tyson Foods)

2. Corporate Wellness (SugarCreek Packing)

3. Innovation (Marcus Technologies)

Additionally, NAMI honored SuKarne with a Special Recognition Award for its initiative to provide accessible and affordable health care to employees, suppliers, their families, and to others in the community through Salud Digna, now the largest private healthcare provider in Mexico.

These companies were all eligible for NAMI awards because they reported data in 2022 for The Protein PACT , which is uniting the largest-ever industry effort to strengthen animal protein’s contributions to healthy people, healthy animals, healthy communities, and a healthy environment.
