April red meat sector exports stable at $863m

8th June 2021 By Staff Reporter | news@foodticker.co.nz | @foodtickernz

New Zealand red meat exports remained steady in April 2021 with a total of $863m worth of meat and co-products exported to global markets, according to the latest analysis from the Meat Industry Association.

The best performers were sheepmeat up 20% to $65m, and beef up 48% to $45m compared with the same month last year.

MIA chief executive Sirma Karapeeva said while meat exports were similar to the $859m recorded in April 2020, the current supply chain disruptions continued put significant strain on all exporters, including the meat industry.

“Along with irregular shipping services and unreliable timetables, there’s pressure on cold storage facilities and container parks,” she said. “All of this means costs are rising at every stage of the supply chain.”
