Up to 80 per cent of beef from the company's Smithton plant on Tasmania's north-west coast is exported to Japan, Korea and the US.

Peter Greenham says markets are starting to open up for grass-fed beef, as the cost of grain-fed meat is pushed higher.

"I can see that the grass fed market, it's a market which probably is going to come back into it's own," he says.
