Krehbiel’s Specialty Meats, McPherson, earned the Most Innovative Pork Award with their steak house pork patty entry at the 2018 Kansas Meat Processors Association (KMPA) Meat Product Show.

The $250 award is sponsored by the Kansas Pork Association and is given based on qualities such as appearance, texture, color, aroma, flavor and commercial potential of the products.

Krehbiel’s generously donated the $250 award check back to the KMPA/KSU Meat Science Student Scholarship fund.

“This was a very nice gesture by Krehbiel’s to help students interested in meats,” said Dave Schafer, KMPA Executive Director. “Thanks again to the pork producers of Kansas for providing this plaque and cash award to incentivize attempts to market interesting new pork products.”

Krehbiel’s Specialty Meats is owned by Jeff Krehbiel and Zach Krehbiel.
