Speed Dating For Beef Export Deals

A UNIQUE Paris business convention enabling beef exporters and French importers to 'pair up' and discuss potential business opportunities has been hailed as a success, with several export contracts being signed as a result.

Leading the field on taking English beef are France, Italy, Greece, the Netherlands, Belgium and Spain following a huge programme of activities and attendance at a host of trade shows by the English Beef and Lamb Executive (EBLEX). Additional events are still in the pipeline aimed at boosting exports further.

Main customers for the first English prime beef exports are Italy, Benelux and Spain with cow beef customers mainly in the Netherlands and France.

Richard Ali, EBLEX Chief Executive, said:
"It is very pleasing indeed to see how well markets in Europe have started to accept English beef again. "But we certainly don't intend to rest on our laurels - there's a lot more work to do. Our planned importer/exporter convention in Paris on June 7 will be important to help set up new business contacts between buyers and sellers. "This is being supported at home by a number of highly successful inward missions with buyers seeing England's beef chain in action. "We intend to make sure England is at the forefront of the work being done and that the English industry profits as much as possible from the trade."
