The Midwest Food Processors Association (MWFPA) has added a new processor membership level to enable the organization to better serve the diverse community of small food manufacturing businesses in the Midwest.
The new membership level applies to processors in Illinois, Minnesota and Wisconsin with gross sales of $2 million or less. The category does not include voting privileges within the association, but does include all other benefits of membership including participation on association committees; listing in the organization’s print and online directory; receiving ongoing industry news and publications; in addition to invitations to and discounts for members-only networking events and educational seminars.
“The new membership category will allow smaller companies to take advantage of working with other processors to promote the food processing industry in the Midwest,” according to MWFPA President Nick George.
Focusing on needs of food processors’, MWFPA works to advance the food manufacturing industry in the region. The association lobbies on legislative and regulatory matters; promotes safe food processing practices; investigates new technologies; funds industry research; and plans industry events.
MWFPA offers three levels of membership. The first level is “Processor Member” and includes those food processors located in the states of Illinois, Minnesota and Wisconsin. The second level is “Affiliate Processor” which consists of food processing companies located outside of those three states. The final level is that of “Associate Member,” which includes companies that provide technology, logistics, ingredients, packaging and other services to the food processing industry.
“The MWFPA board of directors recognizes that there are a growing number of small food processors that need support. As a member of MWFPA, small processors can become part of a larger community of like-minded companies seeking to promote, advocate and benefit the food manufacturing industry in the Midwest and the nation” added George.
