Pakistan opens the Egyptian meat market

10 Pakistani meat producers are now cleared for meat exports to the Egyptian market. "This is a part of our policy of geographical and product diversification. Our exporters are urged to go full speed ahead to capitalise on this opportunity as this sector has immense potential," Adviser to the Prime Minister on Commerce Abdul Razak Dawood said on Twitter.
Pakistan ranks among the top 20 countries in the global halal meat exports and looks to increase its presence in this market, as meat production in the country has increased constantly in the last 15 years. The country’s exports of meat and meat preparations went up by 10% in the last fiscal year to $334 million, though they declined by 4% during the first two months of the current fiscal year to $49.55 million, according to the Pakistan Bureau of Statistics. Recently, Pakistani meat producers have seen a series of import clearance notifications coming from the Middle East. Last month, Jordan allowed three Pakistani producers to export meat to the kingdom.
A new halal accreditation has been introduced by Egyptian authorities at the beginning of October and that could have an impact on meat imports from countries such as New Zealand, Australia, Brazil, according to experts in the field.
