Tariff hikes hit Oregon products

Just last month, Oregon Beef Council CEO Will Wise was standing next to the meat case of a high-end grocery story in Shanghai and observed a consumer choosing U.S. beef.

The steak that the woman chose cost the equivalent of about $50, he said. “It’s cool to see people picking up expensive U.S. beef,” Wise said. He accompanied an Oregon Department of Agriculture trade mission to China, which is one of the state’s largest export markets, along with Canada.
