The Southeastern Meat Association, or SEMA, is an organization of individuals, firms, and corporations who pack, process, and distribute meat and poultry. SEMA members also provide services and supplies to the packers, processors, and distributors. Some of the goals of SEMA are to promote the rules of the meat industry, as well as protect members from unethical competition. SEMA also works with state universities to educate members about the meat and poultry industry.
There are two types of members in the Southeastern Meat Association. Regular members, who are meat and poultry packers, processors, and distributors, or associate members, who are firms or corporations that provide services and supplies to regular members. The association is managed by elected officers who meet several times a year to discuss industry issues and plan industry action.
