USMEF: U.S. beef, pork highlighted at WorldFood Uzbekistan

13 April 2016

U.S. beef and pork were recently showcased at WorldFood Uzbekistan 2016, allowing the U.S. Meat Export Federation (USMEF) to gain further insight into this emerging market. Participation in WorldFood Uzbekistan was supported by the USDA Market Access Program (MAP), the Beef Checkoff Program and the Pork Checkoff.

A country of 30 million people with a diverse and fast-growing economy, Uzbekistan has few restrictions on imports of U.S. beef products, but does not allow U.S. pork imports due to porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDV) concerns. Yuri Barutkin, USMEF representative in Russia and the surrounding region, discusses the market in more detail in the attached audio report, noting that it could hold significant potential for U.S. red meat exports.
