Mission Statement

CMM’s mission is to provide high quality, nutritious, and diversified meat products for our consumers, while growing our community’s job base as well as market share.


Central Maine Meats is a USDA Inspected meat processing plant. We process animals such as cows, pigs, and lambs. The animals are delivered live to our slaughter facility at the Libby Hill Business Park. We harvest the animal and process the hanging meat into consumer ready products, such as steaks, kabobs, ground beef, ground lamb, sausage, and ham. We work with partner firms and distributors seeking to market and utilize our products in a variety of ways. We customize food-based solutions directly for the needs of large distributors, and provide direct services to local customers from our store front.




Central Maine Meats, LLC is located at 563 Brunswick Ave, Gardiner, Maine. Our plant is within a 5-minute drive of both I-95 and I-295, giving us a prime location. Being 45 minutes from Portland, 2 ½ hours from Boston, ½ hr from Augusta, and 1 ¼ hours from Bangor gives us the ability to service multiple customer bases efficiently. Central Maine Meats has a newly constructed building, with high quality interior finishes. The walls of each room in the processing plant are covered with galvalume wall panels, ensuring that we meet USDA Standards in having a washable area. The concrete floors have been coated with an epoxy-based paint, creating a nonslip surface for the safety of our employees. All refrigeration units are brand new and highly efficient.
