Thanks to the actions undertaken by the federal government, Mexico is a world leader in livestock. The country has become the seventh largest meat producer said President Enrique Peña Nieto.
He also stressed that resources of 7 billion pesos ($457 million) have been allocated to the livestock industry to support farmers, which has allowed Mexico to enter into new markets such as Asia and Africa.
SuKarne announced that their domestic production of meat was 6,000,000 tones a year. The president visited Monarca, the company’s plant in Vista Hermosa, which produces 115,000 tons of beef, 34 percent of the total company; 70 percent is for domestic markets and 30 percent for international.
On site of Monarca, Peña Nieto stressed that their success is similar to what is happening in other parts of the country. He attributes improved security and greater investments.
He added that the changing environment that Michoacán experienced has encouraged investments and has allowed them to plan to enter international markets.
He stressed that in regard to the livestock market, domestic production in 2014 was 19.7 million tons, representing a 11 percent increase from 2013. Mexico has become the sixth-largest producer of beef with 1.8 million tons each year with exports of one million cattle standing.
Among the actions that boosted the agricultural sector, he highlighted the restocking of livestock herds, the national program for rehabilitation of rangelands and the construction of infrastructure to capture and store rainwater in desert and semi-desert areas.
Accompanied by Michoacán’s Governor Salvador Jara and Jalisco Governor Aristóteles Sandoval, the president said that each farmer in Mexico is a benchmark of success and their work helps create more jobs and boost economic development. Before a tour of the Monarca plant, Peña Nieto unveiled the plaque from the National Center for Animal Genomics Reference, a laboratory that certifies the genetic quality of animal livestock from 40 associations across the country.
During the visit, 16 containers of 320,000 kg of meat, worth $1.5 million, were leaving the facilities. Meat shipping to all over the world: Angola, Canada, Chile, Ivory Coast, Cuba, Egypt, United States, Gabon, Ghana, Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea, Panama, Puerto Rico and Vietnam.
