Uruguayan Beef in Big Demand

20 February 2012

URUGUAY - Three countries of the former Soviet Union, Moldova, Georgia and Tajikistan, are interested in buying beef from Uruguay, as expressed by representatives of these markets to members of the Uruguayan delegation participating in the Fair Prodexpo in Russia.

The vice president of the National Meat Institute (INAC), Fernando Perez Abella, told The Observer that health conditions must first be met by Uruguay.

Buyers from the three countries expressed interest in principle cuts but have said that medical limitations need to be addressed in the boned meat business, said Mr Perez Abella.

The fair showed that there is interest in Uruguayan beef but it faces price competition with Paraguay.

Russia buys meat from Paraguay, which reported two outbreaks of FMD, the last on 2 January.
