EXPORTS of British meat and livestock products have crashed through
the £1 billion barrier for the first time in more than ten
Preliminary figures released today by the Meat and Livestock Commission
(MLC) show beef and lamb exports both increasing with sales of lamb
abroad reaching £230 million and beef at £90 million
while pork exports were at £100 million.
And in its first year of full export trading British beef exports
reached more than 40,000 tonnes - way above the original estimate
of 30,000 tonnes.
The figures are the highest since 1995 when beef exports were banned
because of BSE.
Meat Export Manager Jean-Pierre Garnier, said: "A great deal
of work has been put into ensuring British beef, pork and lamb have
been displayed in as many foreign markets as possible and we are
now planning a concentrated programme of activity for this coming
"Many foreign markets have been enthusiastic buyers. It seems
we have the right products at the right prices."
