In cooperation with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the Office of Meat and Poultry Services (OMPS) administers meat and poultry inspection laws and regulations designed to provide and maintain a safe, unadulterated, wholesome and accurately labeled meat and poultry supply.

The office oversees the process of converting farm-raised animals into food products, which includes raw products such as ground meat as well as cooked products such as Brunswick stew.
