Extensive damage to production --- particularly seafood, pork and poultry --- means the Japanese will be looking for a lot of food. Australian Lot Feeders Association chief Dougal Gordon said he could not see any disruption to Australian trade. Mr Gordon said one of the strengths of the Japanese market was the big savings of government and consumers. ''Also, we only use one port in the affected region, so right now it is probably easier for the Japanese to access imported beef than move dom- estic product around.'' MLA chief economist Tim McRae said reports from the US showed no impact on orders.
