UK companies benefit from £10m export deal
Published:  12 December, 2013

Northern Irish firms Dunbia and WD Meats and West Yorkshire’s Dovecote Park have received a £10m deal to supply beef to Singapore.

The three UK beef processors involved in the trade agreement will benefit from the recent lift of the Singapore ban, which allows them to export de-boned beef from cattle aged 30 months.

Singapore’s Agri-food Veterinary Authority inspected the three plants and it is expected the contract will be worth upwards of £1m in the first year, with a growth of around £5m per year.

As Northern Ireland’s biggest processor of beef, lamb and pork, with more than 3,000 employees, family-owned Dunbia currently exports to over 15 markets worldwide.

WD Meats is also family-owned and has been processing beef since 1987, now over a 100,000sq ft complex.
