  • Australian sheepmeat exports to China during 2012- 13 reached a new record, at 69,860 tonnes swt, assisted by a more than five-fold year-on-year lift in total mutton exports, to 35,867 tonnes swt.

  • The surge in red meat exports to China has been driven by:

  .  the strong economy
  .  growing population and higher personal income
  .  improving infrastructure and rapid urbanisation in China
  .  increasing demand from a more variety of channels in a wider area of China
  .  tight supplies and associated rising red meat prices in China, triggered by a reported decrease in the Chinese  cattle herd and sheep flock
  .  increasing consumer concerns over food safety in China and Chinese government’s stricter control over food safety
  .  higher production and steady supplies from Australia during the first half year of 2013
