NAMIBIA’S first consignment of world-class premium beef exported in March was finally released on the markets of Shijiazhaung in the People’s Republic of China’s market.
Namibian Ambassador to the People’s Republic of China Hon. Elia Kaiyamo was there to witness the milestone occasion on behalf of the Namibian Government and the Meat Corporation of Namibia (MEATCO).
“The significance of the consignment of Namibian beef is more than just adding yet another high-quality ingredient to the Chinese people’s plate and marks the success of two countries in the realisation of win-win cooperation and happiness for all featured in the vision of “Sino-African community with a shared future,” said Kaiyamo.
Meatco is very proud to be associated with this achievement and indeed appreciate our valued producers/farmers for their continued commitment in this sector.
“We are in the process of preparing other customer’s orders and we strive to live by our objective that of “being the preferred marketing channel of Namibian livestock and to promote the most sought-after meat brands in the long-term interest of our stakeholders”, he noted.
China is the world’s largest consumer market of beef and an added bonus for Meatco to place its products in a niche market where best possible returns can be achieved for producers while contributing to the economy in a positive way.
