Meat & Poultry Inspection Section

Montana’s Meat and Poultry Inspection Section's mission is to ensure that meat and poultry slaughtered, processed and/or stored within Montana meet all state and federal requirements for wholesome and unadulterated products for the consumer’s safety. This is accomplished through onsite inspection of establishment facilities, slaughter operations, processing of products, laboratory testing, licensing and product labeling.
