OHIO BEEF HIGHLIGHTED DURING GOVERNOR VOINOVICH'S TRADE MISSION

 OHIO BEEF HIGHLIGHTED DURING GOVERNOR VOINOVICH'S TRADE MISSION
 TOKYO, Sept. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Ohio beef is being showcased during Ohio Governor George V. Voinovich's trade mission to Japan. At 10 a.m. today, Ohio's First Lady, Janet Voinovich, will visit the Misato branch of the Keisei Department Store where Ohio beef is currently sold.
 Ohio Premier Beef, an Ohio family owned business, is currently shipping approximately 15-18 metric tons of beef a week to Japan. "We are excited about the growing consumer demand for beef in Japan," said Cathy Hironaka, Ohio Department of Agriculture (ODA) International Trade Program Director. "The market for Ohio corn-fed beef in Japan is good, principally because of quality." Ohio is the cattle capital of the eastern corn belt. More than thirty-three million dollars worth of Ohio beef was exported in 1990. Ohio Premier Beef has also been able to offer quality beef at an affordable price to the Japanese consumer.
 In addition to beef, unique Ohio produced popcorn and novelty cookies will be promoted at the Keisei Department Store.
 ODA's International Trade Staff is working to create new markets for Ohio product.
