Nutrition & Health Committee


Advance credible research demonstrating the nutritional and health benefits of beef, and effectively communicate results with consumers, opinion leaders and stakeholders.


  • Educate medical, diet and health professionals about beef and beef production
  • Engage positively in the sustainable nutrition conversation
  • Promote the role of beef in a healthy and sustainable diet
  • Ensure beef’s inclusion in dietary recommendations

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.
