The Perfect Vector!

At Pemberton, we are constantly on the lookout for solutions to help the Ontario meat industry getting more competitive and to bring forward to the public the great food products Ontario has to offer. Meat Industry Expo is the perfect vector to keep up to date with the latest and greatest. We have participated many times and are looking forward to the 2022 event. This is a great opportunity to review and learn what the trends are and how to innovate. The past couple of years have presented lots of challenges and obstacles but with challenges come opportunities and we know that the Meat Industry in Ontario is very well equipped to face those challenges and come out stronger. We are looking forward to seeing you all at Meat Industry Expo this year!

We never miss it!

The Meat Industry Expo in Niagara Falls is a biennial event that we never miss. This event is the only one dedicated to Meat and Poultry independent businesses in Ontario. Most of our current customers attend the show, and we meet new people every time we are there. In addition, we love the region and the beautiful location.
