Australia Seeks to Sell Organic Beef to China

04 November 2009

AUSTRALIA - An organic beef company from the Queensland's Channel Country hopes to become the first to sell organic beef into China.

The OBE company already exports products around the world, including into Japan, Malayasia and Singapore, but there's no organic beef available in China according to ABC Rural.

The company's Dalene Wray has been living in Beijing to develop the market, and says there's huge potential.

"There's a lot of very wealthy people in China," she says. "There's a lot of people in China concerned about what they are eating."

Ms Wray says that there is already a very big organic pig and poultry production base there, so it would make sense that there would be people interested in organic beef.
