Published: Aug 02, 2012
USMEF President and CEO Philip Seng was presented with the French meat academy’s highest honor at the World Meat Congress in Paris this summer.

Seng, along with Li Shui Long of the China Meat Association; Arturo Llavallol, president of the International Meat Secretariat (IMS); and Patrick J. Moore of Ireland’s Bord Bia in Ireland, received the award from Francois Landrieu, president of the Academie de la Viande.

“It is a great honor for me to be recognized alongside meat industry leaders like Li Shui Long, Arturo Llavallol and Patrick Moore,” said Seng.

These global meat industry pacesetters were honored for their leadership and the work they have done through the IMS in building and reinforcing international relationships that have supported the systematic growth of the worldwide red meat industry and led to expanded trade opportunities.

The president and CEO of USMEF since 1990, Seng is the only American elected president of the International Meat Secretariat, serving in that position from 1997 to 2004, the longest term in the organization’s history. He is currently vice president and chairs its animal welfare committee.
