The Achievement Award was established in 1992 and is designed to recognize and foster young professional AMSA members who have demonstrated significant skills and contributions to the animal products industry and is sponsored by Burke Corporation.

"This year's Achievement award had an excellent pool of candidates. The awardees are highly deserving professionals who have demonstrated great innovation and leadership, resulting in a successful track record," said Dr. Mahesh Nair, Committee Chair from Colorado State University. "We look forward to their outstanding contributions to the meat industry in years to come."

"Excellence comes from striving, maintaining high standards, and paying attention to the smallest details," said Dr. Amilton de Mello, Associate Professor of Meat Science and Food Safety at the University of Nevada – Reno. "I always try to go far beyond the call of duty in everything and in every way. I am thankful to my family, mentors, students, and collaborators. I couldn’t have achieved this without them.”
