Laws and Regulations

There are some basics that you should understand before selling meat in Indiana.

If you’re planning to sell meat across the Indiana state lines, it is required that you work with a federally inspected meat processor. However, state-inspected meat processors that take part in the Cooperative Interstate Shipping program also allow for meat to be sold across state lines.

If you’re just looking to sell your meat within Indiana, you can use a state-inspected facility. These facilities have inspection standards that are on par with federal standards (

Meat processed through a custom-exempt plant cannot be sold in Indiana. These plants are still state-inspected, but each animal is not individually inspected. In this case, the owner of the animal assumes responsibility for the safety of the meat.


To learn more, we recommend viewing resources provided by the Indiana State Board of Animal Health. These resources cover regulations for meat and poultry sales, information about the Cooperative Interstate Shipment (CIS) program, and much more.

The Indiana Meat Packers & Processors Association (IMPPA) also provides education, events, and other helpful resources related to the industry.
