Kazakhstan sent its first batch of beef to Iran

The first batch of beef from Kazakhstan has reached Iran at the beginning of March and a second shipment is going to follow at the end of the month, reports Astana Times, quoting local authorities from Akmola Region.
This is the area where meat supplier Agroproduct has its processing units that were recently certified according to Halal standards. Agroproduct signed a contract for the delivery of 700 tonnes of meat in four months to Iran. The Kazakh company has already received an advance payment and delivered 60 tonnes.
“We are going to ship the second consignment till the end of March. Starting from April sales will be increased up to 200 tonnes each month. Iran is a Muslim country. For example, when there is a halal slaughter of every cattle head, a mullah has to come and be present during the process. Meat is packaged in vacuum containers and is sent to Iran in chilled form,” said Serik Rakhimbayev, founder of the company.

“The first batch of our products has already reached them. Everyone liked everything, including taste. We will increase the volume because the partner’s need is up to 1,000 tonnes of beef per month,” he said. The company's meatpacking plant has the benefit of being equipped with modern German equipment and uses innovative technologies to produce high-quality, competitive, export-oriented meat products.
