U.S. beef export growth to the Philippines is being driven in part by the proliferation of Korean-style barbecue restaurants. Meanwhile pork exports are down, but are expected to pick up, says Joel Haggard, USMEF.
The Latin American Product Showcase saw a mix of current and new customers from emerging markets where the U.S. has been working to grow demand for U.S. red meat, says USMEF president and CEO Dan Halstrom.
At the Latin American Product Showcase, more than 60 USMEF exporting member companies participated, displaying and promoting U.S. beef, pork and lamb products. The event attracted more than 190 buyers from 23 countries.
