Namibia continues to export beef to China
Namibia's meat processing and marketing entity Meatco is still exporting beef to the Chinese market, a spokesperson confirmed to Xinhua.
Meatco spokesperson Rosa Hamukuaja-Thobias told Xinhua that while in the last financial year the company was forced to stop exporting due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the entity resumed exporting, with the last export of 22 tons being shipped to China on Aug. 19.
"The Chinese market continues to be a strategic market for us and as Meatco we see ourselves continuing with this market in the long run," she added.
Since 2019, a total of 6,217 tons have been delivered to date, she added.
Beef products including bone-in and boneless meat products are exported to China, according to the spokesperson.
"This is good business for us," she said. Enditem
