Live export volumes to Indonesia are down 15 per cent but Australia's boxed beef exports to Indonesia are steady. And with the new space allowances (ie the marginal 7-15% increase above what cattle have had to endure for the last 40 years required to provide baseline animal welfare), this could decrease further. Add that to the fact that the Indonesian meat processing industry had diversified in response to emerging consumer requirements and price points - an example being mixing beef, chicken and buffalo to produce new processed products, it is clear that Australia should be boxing and/processing meat and doing the value adding here.
