Another Canadian Beef Trade Victory!


The market opportunities for Canadian beef are endless. It?s been a good year gaining new market access for Canadian beef and Gerry Ritz Minister of Agriculture can add Kazakhstan to the list. The Harper Government has been successful in securing market access for boneless beef from animals over 30 months. This new partnership venture is expected to bring $1 million annually* back to the Canadian economy. In 2011 Kazakhstan imported $14 million dollars? worth of Canadian agricultural products.

"We've enhanced our trading relationship with Kazakhstan by supplying world-class beef to a market of strategic importance, giving producers the opportunity to compete for sales in this country," said Minister Ritz.

The Canadian government is currently in the midst of negotiating new requirements with regional Customs Union which includes Kazakhstan and Russia. The Harper government has been aggressive to ensure that international trade remains as a key priority for Canadian beef and agriculture products.
