AWARDS

Dewig Meat Awards

Ever since our conception in 1916 Dewig Meats has been providing quality meats and services. Theses attributes have led us to be successful in both the market place and in being recognized through awards. These awards range from prizes on the state, national, and even international level.

We compete yearly in three cured meat & sausage competitions, the Indiana Meat Packers & Processors Association, Wurstfest in Hermann, Missouri and the American Association of Meat Processors. We also competed recently in our first ever International Competition, IFFA. So, when we say Dewig Meats has some of the best cured meat products in the WORLD, we now have the awards to prove it!

Dewig’s boasts the slogan, “Real Neat….Real Meat!” and it wouldn’t be possible to win this many awards without taking an eye to detail.
