Mexico after beef markets in Russia and Asia
Mexico plans to launch a new Cold Chamber that would help expand the capacity of annual export packing for up to three thousand tonnes of beef cuts to markets like Russia, Korea and China.
The Chamber will be inaugurated by Francisco Mayorga CastaÃ±eda, Secretary of Agriculture, Livestock, Rural Development, Fisheries and Food of Mexico.
The cooling infrastructure has four chambers, two of conservation, freezing and a fresh one - allowing to process and freeze up to 20 tonnes of meat a day. This helps them meet the requirement of consumer markets in Asia, mainly.
These markets used to be stocked from Brazil and other countries, but now Mexico is a reliable supplier. This has been possible thanks to the health status that Mexico has achieved in markets like Japan and the US.
