Morocco and the US Meat in the Middle: Beef Gains New Market Access

Morocco

New markets provide enhanced opportunities for investments and growth. 2018 has been the first year that U.S beef was granted access into the streets of Morocco. The significance of this new market provides exporters, suppliers, transportation agencies and more the opportunity to grasp a foothold in the economy. Investments have already seen to be prosperous, as of November 2018, US agricultural exports to Morocco have exceeded $512 million. So the fundamental questions are: Who can benefit from this new opportunity? How can you benefit from this opportunity? And, importantly, how can you mitigate risks through this new market?

A Market of Opportunities
This new market of opportunities can deliver a prosperous 2019 for your company and yourself. Whether you’re an exporter, importer or within the food industry, this newly found access for beef could provide a strong foundation for investments. Additionally, this may be a stepping stone for a more robust relationship between Morocco and the United States, opening the countries up for further trade of even greater value. The United States is currently the world’s 3rd largest beef exporter with global sales estimating around $7.3 billion. This indicator poses great strengths for Morocco and will generate a sturdy income for the parties involved. The food industry just may be your next investment as this relationship could potentially be the start of a vigorous trade partnership between two countries with the prospective of long-term success.

The proposed estimates that this new deal may bring can potentially generate a staggering $80 million market for U.S beef. A number of this magnitude is not to be taken lightly, there are many who can benefit from this new opportunity. Whether you’re importing or exporting, it is important to have sufficient information on your suppliers or customers. Furthermore, amidst the tight controls on Know Your Customer (KYC) and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) it is pivotal that, when you conduct any type of business arrangement, you perform the right checks in order to mitigate risks of illicit business. AML non-compliance may impose major deficits on your business such as fines, reputational damage and more.
