Indiana Meat Products Can Now Be Sold Nationally

April 15, 2014

Indiana has become the latest among a handful of states taking action to allow meat products produced and processed locally to be sold across the United States.

Indiana has joined USDA’s Cooperative Interstate Shipment Program, which gives certain state-inspected meat processors the option to ship meat and poultry products across state lines.

These efforts are part of the USDA’s commitment to the nation’s small and midsized farmers and ranchers.

“This program plays an important role in expanding opportunities for local producers and small businesses, while also ensuring that a robust food safety inspection system is maintained to protect consumers,” said Brian Ronholm, USDA Acting Under Secretary for Food Safety.

The agreement allows meat to be sold nationally and also to casinos and hotel chains across the state.

The main challenge for now may be the lack of inspectors of Indiana.
