China Opens Up to Chilean Live Cattle and Beef

13 November 2014

CHILE – An agreement opening up beef and live heifer exports to China represents a “huge opportunity” for Chile’s beef and dairy farmers, says the government.

Minister for Agriculture Carlos Furche has said that opening up the Chinese market is “very good news”, particularly for dairy breeders.

He said China’s demand would continue expanding.

Mr Furche added: “This year 12,000 heifers were exported, adding an additional business component to our dairy industry.”

A Chilean delegation travelled to China in September to meet Chinese traders to strengthen business ties.

A list of meat plants has been authorised by Chinese food officials.
