Export Protocols

The Australian Alpaca Association has announced that an export protocol between Australia and Canada is close to completion. This will open up new opportunities for Australian alpaca breeders and may also allow entry into the EU, however more work is still required to enable exports into the EU.

The Australian Alpaca Association is still working with DWAR to establish an export protocol with the EU.

Exports through NZ are still on hold until Australia can establish a Q Fever test for alpaca that will satisfy New Zealand import requirements.

Alpaca exports to China are not affected by the current export restricitons and demand from Chinal for raw fleece and animals continues to grow.

China Trade Fair

The Australian Alpaca Association has been formally invited by the China Wool and Textiles Association (CWTA) to attend their annual trade fair.

The Australian Alpaca Association will be sending a delegation in April.

China is one of the biggest importers of raw and semi processed alpaca and has a growing alpaca herd.

The Australian alpaca association is committed to developing it relationship with China.
 

 

Alpaca Meat

Alpaca meat is growing in popularity in Australia and it appears that the first camelid export abattior will be operational in Australia within the next 18 months.
