U.S. Meat Export Federation

The U.S. Meat Export Federation (USMEF) is the trade association responsible for developing international markets for the U.S. red meat industry. As a nonprofit organization it works to create new opportunities and develop existing international markets for U.S. beef, pork, lamb and veal.

The federation is headquartered in Denver, Colorado, and it has an extensive international presence with offices in Seoul, Tokyo, Beijing, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Singapore, Taipei, Mexico City, Monterrey and Brussels. USMEF also has special market representatives covering China, the Middle East, Europe, Central and South America, the Caribbean and Africa.

USMEF shares its local intelligence and more than three decades of experience with U.S. exporters, traders and buyers in addition to end users and processors in each market. As high-quality U.S. beef, pork and lamb have taken a lead position in international markets, exports play a more prominent role in industry growth and prosperity.
