Midan Marketing, along with the American Meat Science Association, has announced the establishment of the Patrick Fleming Mentor Recognition Fund, recognizing Fleming's accomplishments as a lifelong champion of pork quality and improving the pork eating experience.
Known affectionately among friends as "Pork Yoda," Fleming's contributions will shape the pork industry for years to come. He was instrumental in the establishment of a national meat case survey, and he was an early champion for the Uniform Retail Meat Identity Standards.
He continues his work today as a brand specialist at Midan, helping to educate and engage pork consume's.
The Patrick Fleming Mentor Recognition Fund now seeks to honor his legacy by dedicating a $25,000 scholarship endowment to support meat science graduate students pursuing work related to improving pork quality and the pork eating experience.
