New Zealand’s red meat exports rose 28 per cent to $2.2 billion for the third quarter compared to the previous year, according to the Meat Industry Association. Our major markets were China, with exports up 57 per cent to $830m, the United States, up 35 per cent to $542m, and Japan, increasing 61 per cent to $109m. Sirma Karapeeva, MIA chief executive, says the red meat industry is earning important revenue for the country when other parts of the economy are significantly impacted by the pandemic. Beef exports were up 100,000 tonnes for the first time in the third quarter and September exports alone reached $642 million.
