1. Major Wagyu importing countries

Currently, Cambodia's imports are mainly from China, but in the future, China may open up direct imports of Wagyu beef, and the price of Wagyu beef is expected to increase by 50-100%. Frozen Wagyu beef can be kept for nearly two years. Importing Wagyu beef in advance will significantly reduce the cost of sales in the future and ensure a stable supply of goods in the future.

2. Product Features

Wagyu beef has a higher content of unsaturated fatty acids, such as omega-3 fatty acids and omega-6 fatty acids, and has lower health risks (such as coronary heart disease) and better taste than beef with the same fat ratio. The only thing that remains the same is the care and love that Japanese farms show for their Wagyu beef.

01.

Rich Oil Flower

The most distinctive feature of Wagyu beef is the evenly distributed oil blossoms. Unlike Australian and American beef, Wagyu beef's oil blossoms are evenly distributed, and you can enjoy the rich butter flavor in every bite, a luxurious taste that the Japanese call "frosting".

02.

Melt-in-your-mouth Taste

It is common knowledge that butter melts when it is heated, but in general, the fat and meat of beef are separated. Wagyu beef breaks this rule, and the even oil bloom presents a melt-in-your-mouth texture.

03.

Raw food grade
Quality

The A5 grade Wagyu beef has a similar texture to tuna belly due to the even distribution of fat and lean meat. The melt-in-your-mouth taste and high standard of care guarantee the health and safety of raw beef; the delicious taste is the reason why gourmets are so enamored with Wagyu beef.

04.

Different types of cuisine

Different grades of Wagyu beef can be prepared in different ways, from the traditional Japanese barbecue, teppanyaki, Wagyu beef sushi, etc., to European and American cooking methods, such as cooked, oil-sealed, tartare beef, etc., to hot pot, beef noodles, Turkish kebab... It is versatile and takes the taste to the next level, providing top consumers with a new and luxurious feast for the palate.

3.

Export Quantity Details

Exports of beef produced in Japan in 2019 reached a record high in terms of both volume and value. Over the past 10 years, the amount has increased 8.7 times and the quantity has increased 8 times. With rising income levels in Asian regions such as mainland China, the consumer base for Japanese-produced beef has expanded to the middle and upper income brackets. The demand for not only brand-name beef but also moderately priced beef is increasing, and therefore the export unit price has been declining for three consecutive years. 2020 will see the lifting of the ban on exports to China in addition to the U.S., and the demand for Japanese beef exports is expected to be strong.

Trends in logistics support volume

The price of Japanese wagyu beef has fallen since March of this year (2020) due to the impact of the new pneumonia epidemic on the global industry, and the situation will continue until September. However, with the agreement signed between China and Japan in April this year, Japanese Wagyu beef is expected to be imported directly to China in the future, and the focus of Japanese Wagyu beef sales will gradually shift to China at that time. With the stable demand and reduced supply in Taiwan, it will be difficult to obtain Wagyu beef at affordable prices in the future.

Trend of price changes

The wholesale price of Wagyu beef in Tokyo (A4), an indicator of the price of Wagyu beef, was affected by the emergency declaration issued in April and the evaporation of Japanese food and beverage demand due to a decline in foreign tourists visiting Japan. However, there were signs of stagnation due to the resurgence of the epidemic and low demand during the Bon holiday. However, Wagyu beef prices began to rise rapidly after the long holiday in September and were 2,326 yen per kilogram by early October, recovering to a level that was only 2% lower than the same period the previous year.

An environment beyond the so-called organic farm

The barn is located in Kagaya City, Kagoshima Prefecture, on a wide area of hepatic flatlands. The average temperature is 17 degrees Celsius, 5 minutes by car from Kasahara IC. The barn is always clean and odor-free. 

There are 30 barns with more than 6,000 cows. To prevent disease outbreaks, livestock farmers and the general public are not allowed to enter the barns under normal circumstances. In addition, various facilities and equipment are used, including a state-of-the-art loop composting system and an automatic feed feeding system, to ensure that the black cattle are well fed.

The water source is groundwater pumped up from 150 meters below ground from the majestic Takakuma Mountain, which seeps into the hepatic hirano over the years. In summer, a fine mist is created to cool the interior of the barn.

Because Wagyu excrement contains a lot of organic matter, it decomposes slowly, making it easier for fresh air to enter the soil, thus making the soil more permeable, and also making it easier for water to pass through, improving water retention. Rather than being a fertilizer, it can be used to improve the soil, which is beneficial to maintain and improve soil fertility, activate microorganisms, make the soil soft and fluffy, and make it easy for plants to take root, so it is suitable for soil improvement materials. The fertilization effect is moderate, suitable for leaf and fruit crops.

The type of nasal pattern is influenced by both genetic factors and acquired individual differences. Of course, not all cattle are identified by their nasal pattern, with the exception of Holstein cows, which are usually registered not by their nasal pattern but by the pattern on the left side of their bodies, as they carry more easily identifiable black and white markings.
