Event Details

This training is to introduce and implement recommendations to provide Chinese players along the beef production supply chain with technical assistance and promotes best practices (including adoption standards in alignment with U.S. industry standards), to ensure total food chain quality, increase food safety, and improve the ability to sell more beef and beef products to the Chinese consumers. We will principally focus on educating the Chinese players about beef quality standards, cutting and grading.

The training will also show how US industry can demonstrate leading standards and technical expertise in critical areas of China's beef supply chain. As China continues to retool its beef processing industry, it provides opportunities for US industry as well. It also helps to increase the benchmark in quality, standards, and food safety, which reinforces opportunities for upgrades through the marketing chain for US beef products.
