Beef im­ports ex­pected to dou­ble by 2018

China Daily (Canada) - - NEWSCAPSULE -

Beef im­ports to China are likely to dou­ble by 2018, ac­cord­ing to a re­port, which also said there are signs that China is chang­ing its stance on beef im­ports from Brazil and the United States.

Pan Chen­jun, a se­nior an­a­lyst at Rabobank Group, said do­mes­tic beef out­put is de­clin­ing while there is a grow­ing de­mand for high-pro­tein food in China, the world’s big­gest meat con­sumer.

Pan said China is likely to lift a mad cow-re­lated ban on Brazil­ian beef within the year and al­low US beef im­ports in the next two years. Aus­tralia is China’s top beef sup­plier.
