Opportunities and Barriers to Growing Michigan's Local Food System: The Case of Meat Processing

August 8, 2017

Abstract

This paper details some of the challenges that occur within and between the three tiers of the Michigan meat value chain; at the producer, processor and regulatory level and how they impact meat offerings in local food channels. Considerations for all three tiers include price points and volume, labor issues and reported inconsistencies by those that enforce regulation within the state system of regulations and federal regulations.
