Our Mission

The Alliance is an industry-united, nonprofit organization that helps bridge the communication gap between farm and fork. We CONNECT key food industry stakeholders to arm them with responses to emerging issues. We ENGAGE food chain influencers and promote consumer choice by helping them better understand modern animal agriculture. We PROTECT by exposing those who threaten our nation's food security with damaging misinformation.

Our Initiatives

The College Aggies Online (CAO) scholarship competition empowers college students to become proactive, positive and confident communicators online, on campus and in their communities.

Animal welfare. Antibiotics. Animals in religion. Whatever the hot-button issue, we constantly monitor coverage and conversations, relay that information to our members and develop strategies to address the issue together through our Issues Management Committee.



The media is a powerful tool to share animal agriculture’s story. We proactively engage with mainstream media and aim to be the go-to resource for issues affecting animal agriculture. We engage with trade media to encourage farmers, ranchers and allied industries to share their stories with the public.

The Meat Matters campaign is designed to help people understand the role of meat and poultry in a healthy, balanced diet while debunking myths portrayed by activist groups. Take the #MeatMatters pledge to show you are a proud omnivore.

The Alliance posts on our social media channels daily and we reach half a million people weekly. Follow along and share our content! We share all of our graphics, infographics and talking points for our members to utilize.


ProtectThe Alliance has farm and facility security resources and crisis management tips available to members on our Farm Security Mobile App. The app allows farmers, ranchers and food companies to have the information readily available at their fingertips and provides alerts for time sensitive information.

Our staff gets the inside scoop on animal rights activist group strategies by attending their meetings and monitoring their use of traditional and social media. Alliance representatives recently attended the animal rights national conference and developed a comprehensive report of strategies discussed and speaker quotes, which are available to Alliance members. 

We have detailed profiles on animal rights and environmental organizations who spread misinformation about animal agriculture to help demonstrate their motives. We arm our members with resources through member updates, action alerts and special reports.
