US beef showcased in capital

Chefs and the media industry were treated to a dinner at the deputy ambassador to the United States’ house in London yesterday evening (Monday 25 April) to showcase US beef. 

Hosted by the deputy ambassador Elizabeth Dibble, together with the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the US Meat Export Federation, guests were offered the opportunity to sample American beef and to discuss market opportunities.

Alongside US beef imports into the UK, America opening its borders to UK beef was a topic for discussion, as Great British Beef Week enters full swing.

Just recently, Liz Truss, the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs’ (Defra) secretary of state, was in the US to negotiate a deal for UK beef exports. Meanwhile, the National Farmers’ Union (NFU) president Meurig Raymond was in the country last year, pressing the USDA to open America's borders.
