What are industry IDs
American food retailers and foodservice operators use standardized systems to eliminate confusion about the names of
cuts of meat. IMPS (Institutional Meat Purchase Specifications) and NAMP (North American Meat Processors) numbers,
which are the same, typically are used by foodservice operators (including restaurants) when purchasing wholesale
beef from meat processors. At retail, stores use UPC codes (Universal Product or “bar” Codes) that align with URMIS
(Uniform Retail Meat Identity Standards) to consistently categorize and identify cuts.
