EU Duty-free Beef Quota at Critical Phase

The quarterly allocation of the European Union’s duty-free high-quality beef quota reached its critical phase this week, meaning the utilization rate now exceeds 90 percent.

Total capacity available for the October-December quarter is 12,233 metric tons (mt). As of Dec. 11, volume used totaled 11,123 mt, with another 143 mt awaiting clearance. Shipments are on pace to bring the quarterly allocation to its full capacity by Dec. 17.

If you have questions or concerns about shipments en route or awaiting clearance, please email Thad Lively or John Brook or call 303-623-6328.
