U.S. Pork Featured at Major Festival in Central Mexico

Published: Aug 10, 2023

Thousands attended the first-ever Fogoneros Festival in Aguascalientes, Mexico, to enjoy great music, watch grilling classes and sample professionally grilled U.S. pork. Top chefs, popular influencers and celebrities taught masterclasses, conducted workshops and provided grilling demonstrations during the two-day event.

USMEF provided a mobile grill and kitchen to support Dilusa, a major U.S. meat importer and distributor working to expand its portfolio of U.S. pork products in central Mexico. Dilusa developed six new recipes with U.S. pork loin and tenderloin for the festival, making them available as samples for festival attendees. More than 150 end-users and potential customers of Dilusa in foodservice and retail, and select social media influencers, were special guests for the masterclasses and workshops.
