A Wisconsin meat processor says bringing foreign buyers to shops like his helps export business grow. 

Philip Schmidt owns Hahn’s Meat Packing in Kaukauna, Wisconsin. He tells Brownfield, “I think it’s really important that they get to see what we do, how clean our facilities are, how picky we are, how meticulous we are with our trade and how we do, and then it’s always great to see how different cultures and different people use different products.”

Schmidt says as a processor, he’s been able to find a strong market for less popular cuts of meat.
