Nicaragua broadens its external meat markets

Markets for Nicaraguan beef have increased rapidly in recent years, expanding beyond traditional buyers like the United States and Central America to the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Taiwan and Venezuela. About 500 tons a month are being exported to these destinations from four local meat processors.

Venezuela is the newest market. Next week the first shipment of beef from Nicaragua to Venezula will be made. It is based on a commitment made at the end of 2007 between the Venezuelan and Nicaraguan governments, according to René Blandón, Director of the National Livestock Commission and of the meat processor Carnic.
Last year Nicaragua's beef exports totalled 280 million dollars, up sharply from the 60 million exported in 2006.
