Meatco Gets Biggest Portion of Norwegian Beef Quota

19 December 2019

NAMIBIA - Meat Board of Namibia - the company tasked to facilitate the export of livestock, meat and processed meat products to importing countries - announced that it has allocated the Norwegian beef quota to 1600 tonnes in 2020.

The company in a statement late last week said after assessing applications that it has received, the company decided to allocate the Norwegian beef quota of 1,400 tonnes for 2020 to Meatco and 200 tonnes to Brukkaros Abattoir.

The company said the utilisation of the quota is subject to strict implementation procedures and will be effective 1 January.

However, the Meat Board stressed that the allocation must still be ratified by the Minister of Industrialisation, Trade and SME Development Tjekero Tweya.

So far, MeatCo has utilised 95 percent of the Norwegian quota for 2019 and indications are that it will utilise the full beef quota of 1,600 tonnes for 2020.
