Earlier this summer, USMEF held its eighth annual Latin American Product Showcase, an event that attracted a record turnout of 190 buyers from 20 countries across the Caribbean, Central America and South America. Held in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, the showcase allowed 54 participating USMEF member companies to meet face-to-face with red meat importers from across Latin America.
As shown in this video, exporters are excited about the potential in the region and the opportunities afforded by USMEF’s efforts to bring buyers and sellers together in one location. Livestock industry leaders in attendance also provide their thoughts on the showcase and observations from a tour of Santo Domingo’s retail food sector.
The showcase was conducted with funding support from the National Pork Board, the Beef Checkoff Program, the Nebraska Beef Council, the Wisconsin Beef Council, the United Soybean Board and the Iowa Soybean Association.
This USMEF news release provides more details on the event.
