Question
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?

Thanks
Doyin

Answer
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.
