Belgium, beef producer in the heart of Europe

Belgium has a long tradition in meat export (beef and pork) and occupies a leading role within the European meat production sector. Its strategic location in the heart of Europe is key in a swift and successful supply chain.

Optimal logistics

Belgium’s central location ensures direct access to an extensive and modern transport network, with the Port of Antwerp and the Port of Zeebrugge—Belgium’s largest sea ports—as most important chains. Both seaports serve as a gateway to the world and are especially known for their good relations with Asia. Antwerp is Europe’s 2nd biggest port and is ranked 14th in the world.
So, it will come as no surprise that Belgium has a long tradition in meat export.

Leading role in European meat production

Belgium has always been a leading country in agriculture in general, and in meat production in particular. Belgium owes this leading position to two major assets:
• Its favorable climate for meat production;
• The Belgian meat suppliers: specialized experts, combining customized services with pioneering work in feed and food safety.
