Transitioning a Meat Business Short Course
As a small business owner, you have invested countless hours and resources into building your meat and poultry processing business. However, there may come a time when you want to consider other opportunities or divesting from your processing operation.

This short course is designed specifically for very small to small meat and poultry processing business owners who are considering selling or transitioning their business in the near future. Whether you’re looking to sell to a family member, employee or outside buyer, you’ll leave this session with valuable insights and strategies to assist in making the process as smooth and effective as possible.
