An Introduction to Chicago Meat Authority
Considered among the industry’s most respected companies, Chicago Meat Authority has now been operating for 24 years. CMA has grown from a $6 million organization when it was founded in 1990 to a $95 million company in 2012. And this growth has come from the most demanding meat industry segments, food service, retail and further processors. These are professional meat buyers who will accept nothing less than the best quality products and customer service. CMA specializes in delivering customized, value-added beef, pork and veal products to customers across the world. Both customers and trade media have recognized CMA for listening better and responding to customers` needs. The result has been high-quality stock and customized products, produced by a well-trained, dedicated work force.
"Our customers are our partners..."
The company`s success is based on founder Jordan Dorfman`s business philosophy of partnering with, and responding to, customers` needs better. In reaching this goal, CMA constantly strives to build a better-trained, more dedicated work force, so all involved are working with the end in mind ... the needs of the customer. Less management layers also benefits the customer in that they receive timely and decisive response to their needs. Chicago Meat Authority employs 325 people on three shifts and is headquartered in the historic Chicago Stockyards. These business philosophies have produced a very dedicated and experienced workforce with 70% of CMA employees celebrating 5+ years. The company has finished off their most recent expansion which includes a new 20,000 square foot USDA-inspected plant located directly across 47th Place from CMA`s current plant.
