Canadian beef exporters eye Vietnam market


Canadian beef exporters are looking for a bigger share of the market in Vietnam. Last year the country exported more than USD 2 billion worth of beef to Vietnam. “Asia is one of our priority markets, with Vietnam ranked as a high potential market,” Canada’s Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food Lawrence MacAulay told guests at an event in Hanoi, Vietnam recently, to introduce his country’s beef products.

Vietnam News said the country's imports of Canadian beef last year reached about 320 tonnes, much higher than the estimated 20 tonnes of two or three years ago. Canada Beef and businesses will work with the food services segment and retailers in Vietnam to promote products, as well as study customer tastes, he said.
