An Indonesian meat distributor is importing wagyu, long banned in the Southeast Asian country, in cooperation with the Japan External Trade Organization to test the local market, which has been dominated by the same breed from Australia.

Johana Koswara, managing director of PT. Global Pratama Wijaya, said her company has imported more than 1.2 tons of Omi Hime Wagyu produced in Shiga Prefecture as initial shipments so far for a six-month trial from July to December this year. Indonesia lifted an import ban on Japanese beef last year.
