    Market access issue: import ban on veal and beef products due to BSE.

    Fair access to third country markets is essential for us. With Europe as our most important sales market, gaining access to export markets is essential for the growth of our company. Today, we export veal, as well as feed products, to more than 60 countries around the world guaranteeing the highest quality and safety of our products. However, in 2000, Chinese authorities had introduced an import ban on veal and beef products originating in the EU, - closing all access for our company to a very promising market - until today.
