France, an important ally
France is one of Belgium's most important trade partners in the food business, accounting for twenty percent of our global exports. For some items, like as beef, France is our primary export market.
Belgium is one of the top three suppliers to France. The most essential items are fresh and chilled boneless beef, as well as whole and half carcasses.
In 2021, Belgium will export more than 20,000 tonnes of pork worth more than 40 million euros annually. Fresh and frozen boneless meat are the primary items, followed by frozen boneless meat and hog fat.
France is Belgium's biggest poultry meat market. In 2021, Belgium will represent a 25 percent share of total French poultry imports. Each year, Belgium sends about 150,000 tonnes of chicken meat to France. Exports are increasing.
France is also our second biggest dairy export market. The value of dairy exports to France continues to rise, with yearly sales exceeding €700 million. The most important French goods are butter, milk fat, cheese, and cream.
