U.S. Beef Now Entering EU Under New Quota


Containers of U.S. beef began entering the European Union last Friday under the duty-free, high-quality beef quota that was negotiated earlier this year. The quota is part of a compromise agreement intended to address the long-running dispute over the EU’s ban of beef from cattle raised with growth promotants. (Find more details on the agreement in this July 31 USMEF news article.)

The final hurdle for U.S. beef shipments entering the EU under the new quota was cleared when the EU corrected the erroneous address it had published for FSIS in the Official Journal of the European Union.
