Meet the New Best Friends of Our Consumers – Siri, Alexa, Google, and now Chuck!

“Smart” voice-activated technology has gone from new to normal at an incredible rate. Consumers are highly literate users of technology.

Beef checkoff dollars are keeping the beef message in front of consumers and “Chuck” is helping with the conversation.
