Campaign promotes outside round – USMEF’s featured alternative beef cut for 2023 – to importers, journalists and social media influencers

USMEF took to the streets of Taipei to promote alternative U.S. beef cuts and to announce its featured cut for 2023 to the foodservice sector – the outside round (flat). With the director of the Agricultural Trade Office on board, an upscale double-decker bus transported VIP guests through the city as they dined on special dishes created by the top chef at the Regent Hotel.

“The foodservice sector is struggling with inflation and rising beef prices,” says USMEF Taiwan Director Davis Wu. “We are working to help them understand they have options with high-quality U.S. beef. Alternative cuts can be economical with great flavor, and we are demonstrating the versatility of the outside round flat for use in traditional dishes and new dishes developed for this promotion.”
