Today, the manufacturing industry made history, breaking the Guinness World Record for the “World’s Largest Coin Mosaic” during the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS). In an effort to raise awareness of the vital role the manufacturing industry plays in the U.S. economy and the opportunities it presents for the next generation of workers, the mosaic incorporated more than $65,000 worth of coins – the amount of money manufacturing contributes to the U.S. economy each second.

Just in time for the two major political parties’ national conventions, Jack Link’s® Beef Jerky has unveiled the ultimate – or ulti-meat – tribute to the year’s political race: mosaic portraits of “Barack Obameat” and “Meat Romney.” Painstakingly created by a noted mosaic artist from thousands of pieces of Jack Link’s Jerky, the two presumptive presidential candidates now join Sasquatch, the brand’s icon, in the distinct honor of having their likenesses recreated entirely from jerky. Americans can vote online for their favorite “meathead’ in this unique portrait showdown.

Tuesday, June 12, 2012 marks the inaugural National Jerky Day celebrating the rich history, immense popularity and nutritional benefits of dried meat snacks. The fourth highest-grossing sector within the overall salty snack universe, meat snacks — including jerky — outsell other popular salty snacks, including popcorn and pretzels.
“In many ways, jerky is an ideal snack. Naturally packed with protein, jerky will keep you satiated between meals; but since it’s low in fat, calories and carbs, it won’t sabotage a healthy diet,” said Jeff LeFever, director of marketing for Jack Link’s® Beef Jerky, the No. 1 U.S. meat snack brand. “Plus, jerky tastes great. There’s no snack more deserving of its own special day.”
