Consumer Trust Committee


Grow consumer trust in beef and beef production through greater adoption and understanding of industry best practices


  • Drive adoption of traceability
  • Align and collaborate with traditional and non-traditional partners to tell the positive story of beef cattle production
  • Expand efforts in educating the general public about the BQA program and its impact on animal well-being
  • Develop a direct-to-consumer beef safety campaign
  • Demonstrate beef’s positive sustainability message and key role in regenerative agriculture
  • Develop crisis management plans

Twice a year, producer leaders meet in committees to review promotions and other projects that directly tie to their initiatives based on the Beef Industry Long Range Plan.
