RAM is pleased to announce the creation of the RAM Member Forum.  This new feature to the RAM e-newsletter is designed to provide members the opportunity to reach the entire membership with an idea, question, opportunity, and more!  Do you have space to sublet? Are you looking for a new supplier? Are you trying to sell your business?  You can now seek answers to these questions and more from your industry peers.    
Members interested in posting to the RAM Member Forum are invited to email us at [email protected].  Submissions should be limited to issues related to business needs.  Members are asked to refrain from submitting posts relating to sales, promotions, or special events.

Survey Request for Meat and Poultry Retailers


Kelsey Hopkins, a PhD student at Michigan State University, is conducting research on the U.S. domestic meat and poultry supply chain for her dissertation. If you are a U.S. meat or poultry retailer, she would greatly appreciate your input for her study. 

Click here to access a 15-20 minute survey designed to obtain important information from U.S. retail stores that sell meat and poultry products. Retail stores include supermarkets, independent grocers, butcher shops, delis, and convenience stores. She is looking for responses from meat or deli managers, meat and poultry procurement managers, or similar directors of operations at your store; if this is not your role but you do have this role in your business, please forward this email to the appropriate representative. Please complete this survey at your earliest convenience.
