The European Union (EU) has recognized Argentina as one of the few countries able to export high-quality beef under the “feed-lot quota” to the European market, a press release from the Argentine Foreign Ministry informed on Sunday.

The recognition means Argentina will export 48,200 tons of tariff-free feed-lot produced beef to the EU, a benefit only shared with the United States, Australia, Canada, New Zealand and Uruguay.

“Besides the well-known Hilton quota, made for grass-feed beef, Argentina now earned the possibility to participate in the feed-lot quota, increasing production opportunities for the agricultural sector,” the Ministry explained.

“This is the result of Argentina’s active policies towards the matter, through Argentine representation in the European Union, Brussels Agricultural Council, and also direct contact between Agricultural Ministry representatives and their European counterparts,” the press release concludes.

    No, sorry, this can't be done. Argieland must not have any “relations” with “the north”. So what to do with 48,200 tons of beef. It's only a quarter of a pound of meat per argie. The well-known argie meat sandwich. A slice of beef between two slices of beef. One more thing. Who in the EU is going to buy this stuff? We know all about argie “hormones”, chemicals and so forth. Won't catch me buying this crap.

    in the UK, if it stamped Argenine I wont buy it. Full of un-natural stuff and probably been pumped full of stuff by some of the posters on here, as they vent their frustrations out about being poor

    Not everything Argentine must be considered substandard. I'm sure their cows are very tasty when they aren't ranting away on TV & Twitter.
