Rio Grande do Sul opened the export market for Certified Angus Beef to China. The State carried out shipments to the Asian country of cuts from the Frigorífico Marfrig unit, in Bagé. “This shows us that Angus breeders are on the right path, delivering high quality meat to the domestic and foreign markets,” says the president of the Brazilian Angus Association, Nivaldo Dzyekanski.

 

According to the national manager of the Certified Angus Meat Program, Ana Doralina Menezes, the opening of new markets for products with the seal of the Brazilian Angus Association by the gauchos is a reflection of the quality work carried out by producers and the industry to serve even the most demanding. “Angus Beef is entering a highly competitive market, seeking to conquer its space alongside premium products from several countries that already have a tradition in this segment. We are taking advantage of the opportunity, showing that Brazil does not only produce commodity beef, but also high quality beef”.

 

Exports of Certified Angus Beef in the first half of 2022 grew by 15.2% compared to the same period last year. Of the total exported in these first six months, 75% was destined for China.

 

Marfrig's export director, Alisson Navarro, highlights that Chinese demand for beef has enormous growth potential in the coming years, with countless opportunities for global players such as Brazil. “Marfrig is strategically positioned in this regard. The slaughterhouse's exports to China grow every year, especially Angus beef. Much appreciated by the Chinese due to the differentiated quality, it is a noble product with high added value produced today in the units”. Marfrig currently has 13 plants qualified to export to the Chinese in Brazil, Uruguay and Argentina.
