Food Engineering/Manufacturing/List of beef Jerky contract manufactures in US


Hi Peter,
Could you Please provide me a list of beef jerky contract manufacturers in the US or direct me to where I could source for reliable ones?


Here are two from the Private Label Manufacturers Association. Other possible sources are your nearest department of food science, usually in the university that has a college of agriculture. Ask for the extension professor - he or she will know the state food industry. There may be a trade association for meat snacks, probably based in Washington, DC.
