Silver Fern Farms wants to add more value to meat after launching prime cuts of packaged beef and lamb onto a televised shopping show in China this year.

China is seen as a big, vibrant market which has leapfrogged generations of trading evolution to go quickly from a wet market to a digital market.

During a 30-minute televised slot SFF sold 12.5 tonnes of beef to high end consumers and Chinese shoppers were moving quickly to online buying.
