NORWALK, Iowa, Nov. 14, 2017 (PRNewswire) — Global Agriculture Company (GAC) has just exported six containers of U.S. whole cut beef to China. This is the largest single shipment of whole cut beef sent to China from the U.S. in 14 years. This single shipment is near 22 percent of the year-to-date quantity exported to China. Thanks to unparalleled sales distribution partners in China, GAC is able to purchase and sell the whole carcass.
GAC has an exclusive partnership with many buyers including the largest state-owned food producer in East China's six provinces, Bright Food Group. They are responsible for feeding over 400 million people, including a luxury global hotel chain and China's largest food e-commerce company. They are very excited about importing containers of U.S. beef and are anxious to purchase more.
GAC's President, Tim Johnson, states, "This first shipment will build market confidence in China. This shipment of beef is just the beginning of a sustainable U.S. beef supply to China. China imports 800,000 tons (1.7 billion pounds) of beef annually, primarily from Brazil, Australia and Argentina. We are only scratching the surface of what we can export to China."
Global Agriculture Company is an Iowa-domiciled Trade and Service company that works exclusively with China. They also have an office in Shanghai. Not only do they trade beef with China, but also wine, soybeans, engineering services and other technologies. China is the fastest-growing economy in the world and they have a great desire to learn how to feed and service their own people. GAC has partnered with several China companies to assist them with their growing needs.
