The retailers cited the slow economy and the prospect of offering struggling consumers lower-priced imported US beef compared with prices for Korean home-grown beef, as the major reasons for the move.

US Meat Export Federation (USMEF) president and CEO Philip Seng see Thursday's resumption of supermarket sales as a big breakthrough in regaining Korean market share for the US export beef industry.
