Meat sector has a taste of success

Uruguay has three times as many cows as people and its long-established beef industry nurtures the country's most important export product.

With meat an important part of the national identity, it is not surprising that the country holds the Guiness world record for the largest barbecue ever made, from 13 tons of steel and 12,000 kilos of beef.

Uruguay's meat industry boasts a highly-efficient and reassuring tracking system and traceability mechanisms that allow farmers and handlers to track individual animals throughout the bovine's lifetime.

Solid financial system

With a focus on corporate banking and project finance, Banco Santander Uruguay is the country's largest private bank and a recognized leader in the republic's well-regulated, transparent and fast-growing banking and financial services sector.
