Trade Agreements

CCA's market access priorities are focussed on increasing value. We need access to the highest value customers around the world to maximize the value of every pound of beef Canada produces. It is common for cuts and specialty products from every animal ending up in five or 10 different countries. Marketing efforts under the Canadian Beef Advantage (CBA) brand strategy are focusing on full carcass optimization – or finding the highest value customers for every cut and product from every animal produced.

The Government of Canada's Foreign Affairs and International Trade Ministry maintains comprehensive global listings of current trade agreements for Canadian beef and other products. Click here to view a complete listing on International Trade's 'Negotiations and Agreements' webpage.
