MWFPA Changes Name to Midwest Food Products Association
Members of the Midwest Food Processors Association have voted to change the organization’s name to the Midwest Food Products Association. The group, which represents the food manufacturing industry in the central United States, will make the change official during the first half of 2017.
“The name change reflects the continuing evolution of this Association,” said President Nick George. “MWFPA represents an increasingly broad range of members–companies that produce fruits, vegetables, juices, meat, poultry, sauces, cheeses, snacks, nuts, seasonings, and many other foods in addition to suppliers to the industry.”
He adds that the term ‘processors’ no longer reflects its full membership.
Founded in 1905 as the Wisconsin Canners Association, the MWFPA advocates on behalf of food companies and affiliated industries in Illinois, Minnesota and Wisconsin.
