Interest sought for NAB beef study tour to Indo

Beef Central, 20/08/2013

NAB and Quadrant Agtours are leading a Beef Study Tour to Indonesia next month and are seeking expressions of interest from people wishing to join the tour.

Few countries are considered as important to the future Australia’s export-geared beef sector as Indonesia. 

Indonesia is expected to import about 80,000t of beef in the form of processed product and live cattle from Australia this year, positioning it as our beef sector’s fifth largest market behind Japan, the United States, Korea and China.

With a population of 240 million people, one of the world’s fastest growing economies, and a rapidly developing supermarket and cold-chain sector, Indonesia is considered one of Australia’s most exciting growth markets.

The NAB Agribusiness Indonesian Beef Study Tour from September 22 to 27 will involve meetings and discussions with industry and government officials and visits to key facilities throughout the Indoneisan beef supply chain.

The tour will include:

  • The potential to consider opportunities for Australia in the Indonesian cattle and meat markets; 
  • Assessment of the live cattle trade from Australia and where it fits into the Indonesian food chain;
  • Visits to feedlots and abattoirs in Bandar Lampung and Jakarta; 
  • Briefings from locally based personnel, including indonesian meat importers and Meat & Livestock Australia representatives;
  • Business meetings arranged by NAB Agribusiness;
  • Visits to livestock receival ports, a supermarket and a wet market;
  • Proposed meetings with Australian Government officials. 

The cost of the tour is $6400 per person, but could vary depending on final participant numbers.
