STARTING A MEAT AND POULTRY PROCESSING BUSINESS

Minnesota State "Equal To" USDA Inspection Program or E2 Inspection

Minnesota is one of 27 states currently operating Meat and Poultry Inspection (MPI) programs that are considered at least equal to the federal meat and poultry inspection program (USDA). This means establishments in Minnesota’s "Equal To" (E2) program can slaughter animals and process products to sell, distribute, and wholesale to any entity within the state of Minnesota.

Retailers, restaurants, distributors, schools, food shelves and other entities can buy and serve meat and poultry from Minnesota establishments participating in the E2 program. Products from a Minnesota E2 plant contain a State of Minnesota symbol with the phrase inspected and passed, and the establishment number. When you see this, you can be assured that those products were inspected and passed under the same regulations and requirements that USDA uses to ensure the production of safe, wholesome products.  

The Minnesota E2 program allows smaller slaughter and processing establishments to expand their marking potential, work with smaller business within their community, and provide a service to the farmers in their area. It is also a very important part of strengthening and diversifying local food systems, local economic development, and helping consumers learn to know their local farmers.
