Since October 2010, the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries has been discussing with Japanese government of Malaysia for exporting beef in Japan.

The Malaysian government announced that it approved Japanese beef export facilities (2 facilities) incorporating Malaysian halal system. In response to this, the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare established ‘Malaysia exported Beef Handling Code’ and notified the municipalities.

With this, we have been able to export Japanese beef to Malaysia from today.
