Chilean bovine meat exports have made a 500 per cent increase on last years first half lifting exports to US$8.8 million, reports the Agrarian Studies and Policies Office (ODEPA).

"The growth registered last year has continued during the first seven months of this year and, starting in February, the European Union opened the quota of Chilean bovine meat exports for that market as a result of the FTA between Chile and the European Union,"​ said Carlos Furche director of ODEPA.

The research claims that bovine meat exports, in terms of volume, totaled 4,233 tons in the January-July period this year, which compares to 944 tons exported in the same period of 2002.

Chilean bovine meat's main markets in the period were Israel with a 46 per cent share, Cuba with a 33 per cent stake, Costa Rica with 14 per cent, Libya with 5 per cent, France with 2 per cent and Germany with a 1 percent stake.
