Arrowsight Honored with American Meat Institute 2011 Supplier of the Year AwardThursday, April 14, 2011
CHICAGO, Ill. -- Arrowsight, Inc., today was named the American Meat Institute’s (AMI) 2011 Supplier of the Year. The award was presented during the AMI Meat, Poultry & Seafood Convention and Exposition in Chicago, Ill.
The Supplier of the Year Award is given to a supplier member of AMI that truly partners with meat and poultry processors to help achieve industry goals. Under the leadership of President Mark Moshier, Arrowsight provides remote video auditing (RVA) services for animal welfare, food safety monitoring and a wide range of operational applications in the meat industry.
In presenting the award, AMI Chairman Dennis Vignieri, president of Kenosha Beef International, said that Arrowsight’s technology and third-party RVA services are being deployed in many of the industry’s plants. Operating on the principle that you manage what you measure, the technology gives plant management real, meaningful data about practices that can help and hurt the industry.
Today, Arrowsight technology exists in 23 U.S. and Canadian beef plants. Another eight U.S. beef plants are expected to implement the technology by the end of the year. The technology and systems are also expected in nearly 20 pork and turkey plants by the end of 2011.
Arrowsight and Moshier himself have been active, engaged members of the Institute’s Supplier Community. Moshier serves on AMI’s Executive, Supplier and Animal Welfare Committees and is currently co-chair of AMI’s Political Action Committee. Arrowsight has actively supported AMI’s animal welfare education programs through presentations and sponsorships.
Vignieri applauded Moshier and Arrowsight and stressed the importance of the company’s work.
“By monitoring cameras and the data they generate, our plants can encourage continuous improvement in the areas of animal welfare and food safety and that’s good for everyone,” Vignieri said.
AMI represents the interests of packers and processors of beef, pork, lamb, veal and turkey products and their suppliers throughout North America. Together, AMI’s members produce 95 percent of the beef, pork, lamb and veal products and 70 percent 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.
