Namibia is the first African country to export red meat to U.S.

Namibia has become the first African countries to export red meat to the United States following its batch of 25 tonnes of free-range hormone-free beef sent to Philadelphia.

The country will be sending 860 tonnes of various beef cuts in 2020 to the United States, with its volume rising to 5,000 tonnes by 2025.

“We’re able to finally export meat to the lucrative and big U.S. market,” Namibia’s minister of international relations, Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah, said on Wednesday.

Previously, Namibia has been exporting to Norway, Britain, the European Union and China.
