According to MLA, compared with the same period last year, exports rose to 13,899 tonnes swt - underpinned by a 20 per cent year-on-year surge in shipments to Indonesia.

In addition to the rise in exports to Indonesia, beef shipments to Taiwan increased four per cent year-on-year, assisted by the ongoing strong demand for chilled product as US imports remain restricted.

Australia also exported eight per cent more beef to Thailand during July, despite the import tariff quota already being triggered in early May.

Total beef exports to China and Hong Kong during July decreased 12 per cent compared with the same period last year, alongside lower shipments to the Philippines (down two per cent), Malaysia (down 14 per cent) and Singapore (down eight per cent).
