Prior to the ban, some $9.2 million of Canada’s $1.5 billion in total annual beef exports went to Taiwan, making it Canada’s seventh largest beef market.

The Canadian Cattleman’s Association said that Taiwan is one of the last holdouts among several countries that banned Canadian beef in relation to mad cow disease.
