JASPER — Merkley & Sons in Jasper was among the attendees at the Illinois Association of Meat Processors and Indiana Meat Packers and Processors Association Joint Convention and Trade Show in Bloomington, Illinois, last week.

Merkley & Sons was awarded the following honors at the event: Grand Champion Exotic Variety Class; Champion Variety Class Cured; Grand Champion Fully Cooked BBQ Rib Class; Grand Champion Specialty Commercial Ham and Reserve Champion Commercial Style Ham.
Merkley & Sons also received international recognition for its meat products last week at the DFV-AAMP Quality Competition for Sausage and Ham in Madison, Wisconsin.
Merkley & Sons was awarded with five gold medals — for its smoked bacon, bone-in smoked ham, mini-pit ham, cooked bratwurst and German bologna. It also received a silver medal for its smoked wieners.
Winning five gold medals also earned Merkley & Sons a “Cup of Honour.”
