Headquartered in Henderson, Colo., Birko provides cleaning and sanitation chemicals and equipment to the food industry, with much of its business centered on the protein sector. Since joining USMEF in 2008, Swanson said Birko has benefited significantly from the federation’s expertise and from the contributions exports make to the growth and profitability of the U.S. red meat industry.
