CHAMPAIGN, IL  ─ Clemens Food Group has joined over 40 other companies and institutions as a Sustaining Partner of the American Meat Science Association (AMSA). For more than 50 years, the AMSA has relied on support from partners to maintain its ability to provide community and professional development programs as well as opportunities for individuals in the field of meat science.  AMSA’s Sustaining Partner program recognizes the organizations and institutions that provide significant financial and logistical contributions for the products and services offered by the organization.

“Clemens Food Group has seen remarkable growth in recent years. Their integration gives them opportunities to leverage applications of science across a range of meat quality, safety and sustainability solutions. This partnership will widen the possibilities for AMSA students and create new networking opportunities for all AMSA members,” states Thomas Powell, AMSA Executive Director.

Based in Hatfield, PA, Clemens Food Group is a sixth-generation, family owned company dedicated to providing service and brand solutions that help their customers grow their businesses. Clemens is a vertically coordinated company that includes hog farming, food production, and transportation. Clemens is committed to building a foundation for future generations.  Their new Coldwater, MI plant, which opened in 2017, represented a $250 million-dollar investment and created over 830 new jobs. That infrastructure investment extended even beyond their 600,000-square-foot plant itself; as they built a 9-building apartment complex to help house team members and others in the community, bolstered the local economy, and partnered with local family farms to supply their hogs.

“Clemens Food Group is committed to not only complying with the highest industry standards but going beyond them. We are excited to build on our foundation of expertise in meat science and technology through our new partnership with the AMSA. We are proud to be partnering with an organization that is considered an industry leader in educational, scientific, and recruiting opportunities within the field of Meat Science,” states Drew Cashman, R&D Technologist with Clemens Food Group.

The Sustaining Partnership program enables participating companies and institutions to acknowledge and further align under a common goal to foster the principles of meat science and technology. Our Sustaining Partners have enhanced AMSA programs such as student development, scientific information outreach and building the global network of meat science professionals. The program includes five levels of partnership – Diamond, Platinum, Gold, Silver, and Bronze.
