Beef production in the UK is to be the subject of an hour-long documentary in Korea after a visiting film crew called on EBLEX for an insight into the industry.

A film crew of four from Seoul has spent just under a week filming in the UK as part of a series of documentaries being produced by EBS, country's Education Broadcasting System, focusing on beef production throughout the world.
The producers contacted Mark Topliff, EBLEX Economic and Policy Manager after seeing footage of him addressing delegates at the recent Outlook event.
He met the crew near Bicester, Oxfordshire, with farmer Peter Surman to give the visitors an insight into the British beef industry and the current trends in the sector. Peter then gave them a tour of the farm explaining how cattle are raised in the UK.
"They were particularly interested in what we import, where our beef is sold and the legislation that imported product is subject to," said Mark.
"It was very interesting to hear them speak about their domestic beef market. They import a lot of meat from other countries, such as Australia and the US. We hope that by helping with educational programmes like this, we could be paving the way for future trade."
The series is due to be screened in Korea in July.
