Government support for the Beef Sector and strong Beef Production is contributing to Argentina substantially increasing beef exports. Currently the USDA forecasts Argentinian Beef Exports for 2017 at 270,000 tonnes, up 53,000 tonnes year-on-year.
Argentina is one of the worlds top “per capita” beef consumers creating a large internal beef market with beef production for 2017 is forecasted to be at 2.76M tonnes, up 110,000 tonnes year on year and 60,000 tonnes higher than previously forecasted.
It is calculated that per head the Argentine eats a 6oz steak every day.
Argentina is world-renowned for producing some of the best beef in the world. The Spanish Conquistadors first introduced cattle to the country c.1536. The geographical location of the Pampas region, its largely temperate climate and fertile pastures, makes it the ideal beef-producing region.

When to invest?
The time is now, like never before, to invest in Argentina.
In the last 2 years the IPCAV has signed Beef Export Contracts with 22 countries, including the re-entry to the lucrative European Cuota 481 market. Some of these contracts are the reopening of existing markets that were shut down by the previous Government.
The Argentine Government realise that Agriculture and in particular the Beef Industry is the cornerstone of the economy. Argentina is now the buzz word and Argentine Beef is slowly making its way back onto the international menu after 12 years in ( Government) self imposed exile.
In a recent IPCAV review, that was presented personally to the President of the Nation, it states that several things have been learned:-
On the one hand the domestic market is consolidated and growing.
On the other hand, we can better integrate the average between domestic consumption and exports.
It is reported that "If we grow in productivity and exports, we will be able to place the finest cuts in the EU, the front quarter in Israel and Chile, the Shin Beef, hocks and legs in China, and remaining for the Internal Argentine Market, at more than adequate prices, The Asado, The Tapa, The Matambre and The Cuadril, which are the cuts most appreciated by the Argentines "
