A certificate to allow the export of the skins to Morocco has been issued following the meeting with representatives from the English Beef and Lamb Executive (EBLEX), Defra, UK Trade and Investment and the International Agriculture and Technology Centre (IATC).

For British exporters, Morocco has until now been a completely untapped market.

Jean-Pierre Garnier, EBLEX Meat Export Manager, said: "It is extremely important for us to have reliable markets for sheepskins. The price of the skins helps to add value to each animal our livestock farmers produce."
