MEXICO/SOUTH KOREA: Mexico exports beef to South Korea
Mexico has exported its first shipment of beef to South Korea, following the Asian country's ban on imports of US beef.
Mexico's export bank said a firm in south-eastern Mexico exported a shipment of beef to South Korea in what it hoped would be the start of a long-term business deal, reported Agence France Presse.
South Korea was one of several countries to ban imports of US beef in December following the discovery of a case of BSE, or mad cow disease, in a cow in Washington state.
Before the ban, South Korea's main beef suppliers were the US, Australia, Canada and New Zealand.
