Our members include slaughterers, processors, locker operators, smoked meat producers, retail meat processors, custom operators and wholesalers. The business of the members of the Kansas Meat Processors Association vary greatly but share a single conviction: To stand together to fight for the right to remain in business and to serve their customers.
