Australia ready to compete with Brazil, Mexico in Indonesia’s beef market

Australia is ready to face competition from Brazil and Mexico, new players in the Indonesian beef market, following Indonesia’s decision to diversify its beef import sources. Simon Crean, Australian Livestock Exporters Council Chairman said Brazil and Mexico may reduce Australia’s dominance.
Along with India, the two countries offer cheaper beef compared to Australian sources. However, Mr Crean said price is not everything. “To compete with them, it’s not a big problem. Australian products are well received by customers. They are reliable, safe and clean. We have a significant disease-free status that is globally recognised,” he said.
