Perky Jerky becomes 1st American jerky exported to Japan in 12 years
After Japan recently lifted import restrictions on processed beef products from the U.S., Perky Jerky is excited to be at the forefront of this announcement as the first company in 12 years to export American beef jerky to Japan. Perky Jerky is hoping to utilize existing sales channels established in late 2014 when the company first entered this sought-after market, as well as gain new distribution in 2015.
Perky Jerky, a Colorado-based global lifestyle brand, will first introduce its beef jerky flavors to retailers, media and consumers at FOODEX Japan, the 40th annual international food and beverage exhibition on March 3-6 at the Makuhari Messe convention center near Tokyo. The annual event attracts 80,000 international attendees.
