Meat and Poultry Processing Technical Assistance Opportunities

Recently, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) allocated millions of dollars of federal funding to support the resiliency and competitiveness of the meat and poultry supply chain. As a result, a new collaborative network of organizations across the U.S. formed to support meat and poultry processors through grant application management, business development, technical assistance and supply chain development.

Join AURI Connects: Webinar Wednesday on December 14 as we explore the opportunities the Meat and Poultry Processing Technical Assistance network provides and what AURI offers local and regional meat and poultry processors in the Upper Midwest region. This webinar will also feature speakers from the USDA-Agriculture Marketing Service and Flower Hill Institute, and illustrate examples of successful recipients that received meat and poultry grant awards.

AURI Connects: Webinar Wednesday is a monthly webinar series hosted by the Agricultural Utilization Research Institute. Each webinar explores different aspects of the food and ag sectors in Minnesota—from resources for food entrepreneurs to innovations in coproducts and biobased energy.

Webinars take place on the second Wednesday of the month from 12 pm – 1 pm. Registration is free and open to the public. To learn more about upcoming webinars and watch past recordings, visit us at
