Update on the USA Market

10 Jul 2020

Meatco has shipped 18 containers with an average weight of 23 tonnes to the United States since the first official consignment in February this year.

The American market is pivotal to Meatco, as both the company and producers get maximum returns. Under the final approval agreements, Meatco is exporting boneless beef (raw-intact, raw intact beef, boneless beef for manufacturing trimmings – manufacturing trimmings for cooking only). Meatco also exports both chilled and frozen boneless meat (excluding offal products).

Because of Meatco’s high-quality beef, Namibia became the first country in Africa eligible to export beef to the United States.
