Mercabarna, at the First Beef Intersectorial Meeting

Under the title “From Source Markets to Distribution”, representatives of the beef production and sales chain analysed the current situation within the sector and voiced their concern regarding the competition from imported meats of lower quality but sold at highly competitive prices compared to domestic meats.

It was additionally suggested that a platform be created to bring together all the agents from the beef sector to tackle future challenges in the sector. Similarly, during the meeting, there was a demonstration on how the national pricing table works, where Mercabarna, Mercolleida and the Talavera de la Reina Market every week (by videoconference) and every two months (onsite) set the price of beef at a national level.
