About the Meat Export Tool
The visualisations available from this tool use aggregated data provided by meat exporters in export entries submitted to 必威手机下载版 Customs Service for all exports.
All meat exporters must be registered with 必威手机下载版 Meat Board under the Meat Board Act 2004.
Each month, export data for sheep meat and beef from Chapter 2 of the Harmonised System (HS), which covers meat and edible meat offal, is received from 必威手机下载版 Customs. The data available through this tool cover lamb and beef meat. It does not include edible meat offal. Our target is to process and release the information in this tool by the 10th of the month following export.
Countries with values of less than $100,000 are not shown as they are not considered material in the context of world markets.
