The association has established itself in the most important sector of the manufacturing industry in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern - agriculture and food production. As the most important network for the food production sector in the state, AMV organises joint marketing activities and focuses on sustainable marketing. The association thus helps the sector to both secure jobs and promote job growth.

(AMV) links the main players in the food production sector: Manufacturers of meat products and small goods, fish products, beverages, milk and dairy products, fruit, vegetables and potato products as well as baked goods and other product groups covering a diverse range of regional delicacies and specialities. As an important part of the local agriculture and food production sector, the organic sector is also well represented within AMV.
