Nebraska Trade Delegation Reports Meat Trade Opportunities In Taiwan


Nebraska’s trade delegation made a stop in Taiwan Friday. Besides announcing the sale of $ 472 million worth of corn, soybeans and wheat, Lt. Governor Lavon Heidemann leader of the group says they made progress on beef trade.

Nebraska Ag Director Greg Ibach says they’re also making inroads with their meat in Taiwan restaurants.

Heidemann says the ractopamine ban by Taiwan on U.S. pork is continuing however and there hasn’t been any further movement on that issue.

Nebraska’s trade group besides finalizing their grain sale also met with Taiwan’s Vice President and with officials from the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Counsel of Agriculture, and Ministry of Foreign Affairs before heading off for Japan.
