Namibia is the first African country to gain market access to export beef to the United States after 18 years of trade negotiations between the two countries. On February 19, 2020, Meatco, Namibia’s state-owned beef manufacturer, sent the first commercial beef shipment destined for the Port of Philadelphia in the United States. While initially targeting the beef processing segment, Namibia ultimately aspires to capture a higher-end, niche market of health-conscious American consumers.
