Kazakhstan to supply beef and mutton in China by the end of the year
“There is increasing a great demand for organic meat, thus China cooperates with Kazakhstan. We are discussing the delivery of ecological and organic meat. Volumes, which we plan to deliver a year, ranging from 50 to 60 thousand tons of beef and 300 thousand tons of mutton. This figure is made on the basis of the estimated capacity of the meat processing companies that have applied to carry out the inspection and inclusion in the register of enterprises, which have the right to supply their products to China,” G.Issayeva said.
According to her, it is expected that Kazakhstan will export meat to China by the end of the year.
“We look forward to successful completion of the inspection, the inclusion of these businesses in the register by the end of this year, the beginning of the supply of beef and mutton,” G.Issayeva added.
It should be reminded that China lifted the restrictions on FMD from 9 regions of Kazakhstan. Since 2013, the supply of meat and meat products from Kazakhstan to China, related to the registration of the FMD outbreaks in the territory of EKR, was restricted.
