USA, Washington. On Tuesday, the newly formed Women’s Meat Industry Network (WMIN) met for their first in-person networking event at the International Production and Processing Expo (IPPE) in Atlanta.

Recognizing that meat and poultry production and related businesses are typically male-dominated, a cross-sector group of women in industry and academia agreed to work together to address this disparity and improve professional development and career opportunities for women.


The network aims for their members at all career stages from entry-level to c-suite, and in all types of jobs from those in sales, to operations, to food safety to management to benefit through mentoring, professional development, and networking opportunities.

Membership is not exclusive to women but open to anyone interested in promoting WMIN’s values. Among its sponsors are American Foods Group, Cargill, Pork Checkoff, Clemens Food Group, Seaboard Foods, and the U.S. Meat Export Federation.
