The Meat Institute was the only trade association to win a 2018 award, given to a single winner in 32 different categories.
In addition to the Bronze Anvil award, the Meat Institute, National Hot Dog and Sausage Council and Beef Checkoff received an Award of Commendation for December’s Jacksonville Jaguars bologna promotion. Awards of Commendation were given to just 82 entries out of more than 500 and no more than three in any given category.
