Nigeria and MeatCo discuss possible collaboration


Several states in Nigeria are having discussions with Namibia's Meat Corporation about possible collaboration in husbandry and meat exports.

Namibia's record of being among the few to export its beef to the European Union and the first African country to do so to the US has inspired Nigeria's livestock producers.

Talks between the stakeholders started as early as 2019 as Nigerian producers wanted to upgrade ranching and processing facilities to international standards, benchmarked from Namibia.
