Certified Angus Beef Sets Sales Record in 2011

Thu, 03 Nov 2011 12:04:47 CDT

Certified Angus Beef Sets Sales Record in 2011 Cerified Angus Beef reached record sales again. Coming in with the fifth consecutive year of growth in sales, CAB is seeing a definite increase in beef demand. The CAB brand's licensed partners marketed about 807 million pounds of beef, which is almost a 4% increase since 2010.

Randy Blach of CattleFax says CAB is growing at a more rapid pace than even what is being seen with just the average domestic beef demand across the country. Blach adds that many consumers are picking higher quality when they go to retail stores to ensure a better quality eating experience.

The CAB sales growth was balanced across the board with increases among steaks, end meats, and ground beef. Food service was also up by about 11% and the international sales grew by about 13%. Blach says that this is an opportunity globally because of growing population and U.S. producers are providing a high quality product.
