Saudi Arabia: Saudi Arabia Extends Shelf-Life for US Beef

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

On February 2, 2021, the Saudi Food and Drug Authority (SFDA) increased the shelf life for U.S. chilled beef from 70 to 120 days. This measure is expected to help U.S. exporters save at least $4 per kg while providing Saudi importers with the flexibility to purchase larger quantities of U.S. beef. Since 2016, Post has been seeking a longer shelf life for U.S. beef, and this announcement is a welcome sign for many beef importers in Saudi Arabia. In 2020, the United States exported approximately $10 million in U.S. beef to Saudi Arabia, and that number is expected to significantly increase over the next several years.
