NZ hopes to export beef, breeding cattle to Indonesia


New Zealand Prime Minister John Key believes real progress has been made on securing a better deal for New Zealand farmers trying to export beef products to Indonesia. “Beef prices are high here [Indonesia] and there’s no question New Zealand exporters would put into the marketplace a high quality product, but at a lower price,” Mr Key said during his visit to Jakarta, Indonesia.

Meanwhile, New Zealand is also looking to export cattle to Indonesia for breeding purposes. Mr Key said progress is being made on that front, but it is a matter of finalising a number of protocols, including making sure Indonesia meets animal welfare expectations.
