ABOUT THE CAMPAIGN
Nice To Beef You
Funded by the European Union, the EU BEEF ASIA: “Nice To Beef You” campaign aims to increase the competitiveness and consumption of European Beef Meat in China and South Korea, raising their profile and expanding their market share by enhancing the EU access for beef meat into the mentioned markets.

The entire production chain determines its activity to achieve compliance with the requirements defined by the European Production Model, the most demanding control system in the world, which aims to ensure the production maintains traceability throughout the process, be environmentally, animal welfare standards, food safety and high quality friendly.
