Colombia’s steady economy growth, increasing production of proteins, and growing demand for high quality pet food are creating new opportunities to increase exports of MBM products to the country.
Vietnam is a growing market for beef and beef products, with demand driven by numerous factors including a growing population, economic growth, widening integration with global economies through free trade agreements, rising income per capita, and expanding modern retail and food service channels.
