Japan has become the third country certified to ship beef to Saudi Arabia.

The certification was confirmed at the signing ceremony attended by Prince Faisal bin Bandar Bin Sultan Al Saud and Tomoshige Kanawa President of the Kobe Beef Marketing and Distribution Promotion Association.

Beef in Saudi Arabia can only be eaten if it is processed in a way prescribed by religious rules and is certified as halal. Saudi company Fam Al-Ghidha was appointed as an authorized halal Kobe beef distributor for 13 Arabic-language countries.

Prince Faisal traveled to Japan to sign the contract and tasted Kobe Beef. The ceremony was also attended by Hyogo Prefecture Government Motohiko Saito and Masao Imanishi the deputy mayor of Kobe City.

This year, 145 heads of halal Kobe beef are scheduled to be shipped to Saudi Arabia.

In addition to the Sanda Meat Center, Kumamoto Chuo Meat Center and Sugimoto Honten, both based in southern Japan, have also been approved to export beef to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia
