The Meating Place – 2016 Conference
The Ontario Independent Meat Processors (OIMP) came together for their biennial conference, The Meating Place on October 24th, 2016. OIMP members attended and many were recognized for their accomplishments in a number of different areas.
OIMP is the representative voice of the independent meat and poultry processor in Ontario. The association’s membership includes meat and poultry processors, retailers and wholesalers; industry suppliers, and some not-for-profit organizations in support of OIMP.
On Saturday afternoon Brent Herrington faced off against some tough competition for the title of Ontario’s Finest Butcher, against Nicholas Matusiak, Halenda’s Meats, Oshawa and Peter Baarda, owner of J & G Quality Meats, Burlington. Each butcher had a whole rabbit, chicken, and veal loin from which to prepare merchandisable cuts ready for the barbecue within the allotted half hour. Our congrats go to Peter Baarda on his victory.
