Marfrig's units in Uruguay approved for export to Saudi Arabia

Uruguayan plants owned by Marfrig have received the right to export in Saudi Arabia this week, announced the company in a LinkedIn post.
"Marfrig Global Foods has just had its units in Uruguay qualified to export beef to Saudi Arabia. The units located in Tacuarembó, Salto, San José and Cologne will serve the Arab market that, from now on, will have access to Marfrig products recognized worldwide for their quality and excellence. The company already has 10 plants in Brazil, also qualified for export in the region," said the company.
Last year it was the first time when China's imports of poultry and beef have surpassed the volumes imported by Saudi Arabia, according to data released by the Brazilian-Arab Chamber of Commerce.
However, with a decline in the Australian national herd and several cases of bird flu reported in the EU, Gulf states are looking to secure their supply of beef and chicken meat in the near future. Besides Saudi Arabia, the Emirates have created a new food security council to seek new suppliers in the global market as the global meat production is expected to decline in short-term.
