WTO ruling to increase US beef exports to Indonesia

20.01.2017

The recent World Trade Organization’s decision could provide further momentum for US beef exports to Indonesia. Feedstuffs quoted Joel Haggard, US Meat Export Federation (USMEF) Senior Vice President for the Asia-Pacific, as saying: “Indonesia has been heavily regulated in terms of the way it controls its importers - what they can import, when they can import, how they can import it.

They began to loosen some of those restrictions early in the spring, but the commercial effects really came into place late last year.” Mr Haggard added that: “Some of those cuts would be items like knuckles and some of those hind-quarter cuts, plus some offal items. Liver and heart are now eligible. Those items were previously not allowed to be imported, and now they are.”
