Globalization Globalization is increasing – livestock sector Investment and finance Retail expansion into developing markets is increasing global trade –Wal-Mart; in 2006 the world’s #1 retailer will open 230 new international stores –going from 50 to 70 outlets in China by the end of 2006 This globalization benefits our competitors as well
The New Era of Better Informed Consumers Consumers, both domestic and international are demanding assurances of food safety In addition to safety, consumers want to know where the product was produced, who produced it and is it fresh
Global Trends – New Realities Information is the cost of admission Plate to Gate, not Gate to Plate –Market is being driven by consumers, not producers Increase in branding at retail level
Global Trends - “New Realities” World protein complex is dealing with the dual shocks of BSE and AI Consumers are becoming increasingly concerned about food safety. Brands/traceability are becoming more important. Competition for export markets is intensifying. FTA’s are enhancing long-term market prospects.
Global Trends - Brands Natural Brands Store Brands Private Brands
The Brand Promise Randy Blach, CattleFax, Branded beef products (not even counting store brands) account for about 10% of annual fed-cattle production, and he expects it to grow significantly by the end of the decade. Source: BEEF, January 2005
Store Brands Becoming the Norm Branding will grow because a brand represents a promise of quality A tremendous amount of marketing and dollars will be placed behind a brand A brand can build customer loyalty & repeat buyers

Winning back consumers around the world More And More Consumers Give U.S. Beef Thumbs Up Online tracking surveys were conducted May 5-7 to update consumer reaction toward U.S. beef import resumption, safety and purchase intention. The survey showed 34 percent (up 3.2 percent from the last survey) of respondents support trade resumption. Approximately 18.5 percent would purchase U.S. beef. The results are higher than those from April.
