Ambassador Hosts First U.S. Beef Promotion

On the evening of April 8, the United States Ambassador to Ghana, Gene A. Cretz, hosted a cross section of politicians, business people, and diplomats at the first-ever promotional dinner in Accra for U.S. beef.

The Urban Grill Restaurant, located at the Airport City, provided a spectacular venue to celebrate “U.S. beef proudly produced in the great State of Nebraska.”

“We thank Governor Pete Ricketts of Nebraska for his support of this event, and recognize the Nebraska Beef Council and Greater Omaha for providing the star ingredient.  The United States is strongly committed to delivering high quality, safe, healthy food products to consumers all around the world, and U.S. beef is one of our “super stars.”  Sharing our cultural diversity remains just one of the bonds, which form the close friendship between Ghana and the United States,” proclaimed Ambassador Cretz.

U.S. beef is a high-quality product that is readily available for the new, exciting restaurant scene in Ghana and neighboring West Africa countries.  Please contact the following organizations for more information on U.S. beef and beef products:
