Diseases hit global meat exports

Approximately one-third of global meat exports, or 6 million metric tonnes, are presently being affected by animal disease outbreaks, the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) said today. With the value of global meat and live animal trade estimated at $33 billion (excluding EU intra-trade), this could amount to world trade losses of up to $10 billion, if import bans extend throughout 2004.
