Due to limited supply and high demand of beef meat in Europe, it is now the perfect time to invest in the production of beef cattle.
Poland is an agricultural country known for its excellent livestock production.
Beef production has been growing in recent years. 2016 and 2017 was no exception. There is a large and growing domestic consumption of beef meat but Poland is, however, still a net exporter of beef. In 2015 exports of beef amounted to 365,923 MT and were 20 percent higher than in 2014.
Italy remains the predominant destination for exported Polish beef and took 22 per cent of Poland’s exports in 2016, or 73,100 tonnes. Budget conscious Italian consumers are favouring smaller cuts and Polish exporters are adapting to this with heifer beef. Germany is the next biggest importer of Polish beef, at 48,200 tonnes, with an appetite for cow beef in its processed products.
The Netherlands, Belgium, Spain and France are also major importers of Polish beef within the EU, while Bosnia & Herzegovina together with Israel and Arabic countries are major buyers outside the EU.
