Abstract: In 2002, consumers from Chicago and Denver participated in an experimental auction and taste panel to elicit willingness to pay for beef originating from the United States, Australia and Canada. Approximately 69% of the consumers were willing to pay a premium of 19% more for a 'Guaranteed U.S.' steak than for an unlabeled steak. When comparing consumers' taste preferences for beef originating from various countries of origin, it appears that a segment of the population prefers the taste and is willing to pay a premium for beef originating from Australia. A larger segment of the experimental population, 34% of the consumers, preferred the taste and was willing to pay a premium for the Canadian steak. However, on average, consumers were willing to pay premiums of approximately 31% and 10% more for the U.S. steak than for the Australian and Canadian steaks, respectively.
