Looking at the overall situation in 2022, the trade cooperation between China and Uruguay in beef and beef offal products shows a positive trend. Uruguayan plant 22-- Matadero Rosario (Rondatel S.A.) restored its qualification for exporting beef to China, and Frigorífico La Trinidad (OFERAN SA) was successfully approved to export beef and mutton products to China. In addition, MGAP of Uruguay has said that it is negotiating with the Chinese Health Department to achieve the goal of exporting salted beef tripe, trimmings and other products to China, which proves that the two countries have bright prospects in agricultural and animal husbandry trade and development.

 

As early as Aug this year, China began to inspect Uruguayan facilities to assess whether their production links and product quality meet the requirements and standards for bone products exported to China.

 

Uruguay, as the third largest supplier of beef imports to Chinese Mainland, has maintained a considerable beef trade between the two sides. In the first 11 months of 2022, Chinese Mainland's beef imports from Uruguay increased by 7% YoY to 331,000 tons, accounting for 14% of the import market. If the free trade agreement between the two sides can be successfully signed in the future, China's beef import tariff from Uruguay will be reduced, which is expected to further promote bilateral trade cooperation in beef and other fields.
