Countries like EU, China and Indonesia have not been allowing import of Indian buffalo meat citing reasons like prevalence of Foot and Mouth Disease (FMD) in India. However, in general, there are no bans imposed by these countries.
There is a continuous growth in export of meat during last three years.
The Government has been flagging the issue of market access of Indian buffalo meat with EU, China and Indonesia from time to time on different platforms.
This information was given by the Minister of State (Independent Charge) in the Ministry of Commerce & Industry Nirmala Sitharaman in a written reply in Lok Sabha.
