FRANCE - The Export of Meat, Livestock and Genetics (GEF) has been launched in France, supported by the Ministry of Agriculture and the National Association Of Livestock and Meat (INTERBEV).

The Minister of Agriculture, Bruno Le Maire, welcomed the launch, saying that it was a historic day for the French beef industry.

Minister Le Maire said that GEF reflects the shared commitment of stakeholders, which aims to enhance French beef through the organisation of strategic, sustainable and co-ordinated growth to improve the markets for live cattle, beef and genetics.
