Creating a Better
Future for the
Meat Industry.

Down arrow

Like our principals, many of our team members grew up on family ranches and farms or have worked in the packer/processor, retail and foodservice sectors. Their personal perspectives provide unique insights into our partners and consumers that we share through the talents of our marketing, advertising, creative and consumer research teams.

We embrace and respect team members of all religious beliefs. Everyone is welcome here.

As followers of Jesus Christ, Danette Amstein and Michael Uetz, the principals of Midan Marketing, strive to live in a manner consistent with the precepts and doctrines of their faith which are grounded in the Bible, and operate Midan Marketing in accordance with these principles.

While their personal and deeply held beliefs may be referenced from time to time, such as prayer during company gatherings, participation in any religious expression at Midan Marketing is entirely voluntary. The right to disagree with the statements reflecting their beliefs is one that is protected under law, as is exercising one’s own right to believe — and one we uphold earnestly.

No matter who you are, no matter what you believe: Our doors are always open to you.



Take a closer look at our deep bench of team members with meat industry knowledge and seasoned marketing and communications experience.
