Consumer demand signals spur progress in the cattle business, but producers must be proactive when making changes in their marketing strategy. The Feeding Quality Forum event delivers solutions to market-focused cattlemen who want to get rewarded for raising premium beef.
The Certified Angus Beef ® brand is often advertised as “the best,” and taste secured its growth around the globe. As a younger generation of consumers has more buying power in the market, their expectations of high-quality beef are expanding. Here’s how the brand is meeting this new wave of demand.
Yesterday’s steak and baked potato is today’s beef brisket from the restaurant downtown. The food scene is changing, driven by a new age of consumers who want more. They seek new flavors and attributes on the packaging, but still expect beef to taste great.
While the competition is growing, the brand’s team of 150 diligently works to differentiate CAB from the rest of the pack. Consumers can feel confident purchasing the Certified Angus Beef ® brand, a high-quality product that is the result of Angus farmers’ and ranchers’ commitment to quality.
