Leaders representing the US red meat industry recently traveled to Tokyo to commemorate the 45th anniversary of the inaugural US Meat Export Federation (USMEF) office, which opened in Tokyo in 1977, according to a press release from the organisation.

Japan has consistently been a top customer and is the leading international market for US red meat, purchasing nearly $4.1 billion in 2021. Through July 2022, US red meat exports to Japan reached $2.4 billion.

The US-Japan trade partnership is highly valued by those in the US pork, beef and lamb industries. While in Tokyo for meetings, market visits and a celebration event attended by 200 importers, distributors, trade media and US exporters, industry representatives expressed appreciation for the business relationships developed over the past 45 years and expressed a commitment to serve the Japanese market well into the future.

The federation released a video to highlight the team's activities.
