Based on feedback from stakeholders, the United States and Canada earlier this year agreed to harmonize the terminology used for wholesale meat cuts.

The U.S. Institutional Meat Purchase Specifications Series (IMPS) documents for fresh beef, lamb, veal and pork were released. Based on feedback from stakeholders, the United States and Canada earlier this year agreed to harmonize the terminology used for wholesale meat cuts by adopting the U.S. Institutional Meat Purchase Specifications (IMPS) as the standard meat nomenclature.

“Adopting a common trade language is beneficial to industry, and enhances trade and opportunities for American producers,” said USDA’s Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) Administrator Anne Alonzo. “Meat production in the U.S. and Canada is highly integrated, and using the same terminology benefits industry by reducing costs of maintaining separate inventories, and facilitates the efficient trade with our Canadian partners.”
