International Marketing Committee


Increase U.S. beef demand in international markets by leveraging unique attributes of U.S. beef.


  • Drive adoption of traceability
  • Identify and address export customer needs and values

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.
