Hormone-Free Beef Moves Into EU

ACanadian company has shipped 120 tonnes of hormone-free beef to the European Union since the EU granted Canada duty-free access, Canada’s agriculture minister said March 14.

Alberta-based Canada Gold Beef made the sales, worth $1.5 million, and shipments look to continue at the same pace, Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz said in a press release.

Canada said in November that it had gained access to Europe for 20,000 tonnes of beef annually, with a further 3,200 tonnes to be added as compensation for the EU’s ban on beef from cattle treated with growth hormones.
