The craft beer industry is booming in South Korea, and what goes better with a good brew than U.S. sausage?
We can’t think of anything!
Check out this video from the U.S. Meat Export Federation featuring U.S. pork at a craft beer event in Seoul Korea. You’ll want to pay particular attention to the U.S. pork label on a toothpick in the sausage at around the .02 mark.
IL Corn funds the U.S. Meat Export Federation to carry out marketing and promotions of U.S. meat just like this. Without the opportunity to try U.S. pork and beef products, many consumers in other countries wouldn’t start demanding the amazing flavors and the tastes available to them from just over the pond.
And don’t forget, thanks to this important promotional work, U.S. beef export volume was the sixth-largest on record in the latest reports from May 2018, valued at a remarkable $722.1 million, which surpassed the previous monthly high (March 2018) by a healthy 4% and was 24% higher than May 2017.
