10/15 Webinar: Small Processor Opportunities in the Pandemic Era

October 15 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm

START DATE:10/15/2020

START TIME:2:00 PM EDT / 11 AM PDT

The Coronavirus pandemic has created many challenges for small processors, but it has created many opportunities as well. As consumers see empty meat cases at grocery stores and hear reports about COVID-19 outbreaks in large meat plants, they may turn to other sources for their protein purchases.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Alternative meat sales channels that exist, and how companies in those channels have adapted to increased demand
  • Expanding a producer customer base, as the shutdowns and reduced operations of the big packing plants have forced farmers to find alternate means to profit from their animals
  • Finding a new consumer base, as companies that sold to the foodservice industry have to find new customers to replace the restaurants that have shut down or reduced their demand.
