US Beef Export Volumes Rising

The latest red meat export data from the US showed solid results for beef, with volumes trending 8 per cent higher than a year ago, according to statistics released by USDA and compiled by the US Meat Export Federation (USMEF).

Japan and South Korea continued to be top performers for US beef in July, driven by strong demand for chilled beef. In Korea, January to July exports climbed 23 per cent in volume.

Highlighting the need for more destinations for beef variety meat (offal), exports to Egypt continued to slump in July, but overall US beef variety meat exports increased in July.

“We are pleased to see demand for US beef variety meats increasing in other markets and helping to offset the slowdown to Egypt,” said Philip Seng, USMEF president and CEO. “It is a top priority for USMEF and our beef industry partners to expand the reach of beef variety meat exports and build demand in alternative destinations, and those efforts are paying off.” – Click here to read more.

US beef variety meats contribute to popular delicacies around the world, such as tongue cooked Yakiniku-style in Japan. Click here to find out more in our latest article from John Wilkes.
