Eblex event to highlight beef and lamb trends

Global beef and lamb sector trends and developments will be highlighted at an Eblex and agri benchmark event in June.

The free Global Forum will take place in York and will feature several topics, including global key market trends, the future of European agricultural policy and the latest developments in the UK beef and lamb sectors.

Presentations on global meat production and the Russian and Chinese beef and sheep markets will also be given. There will be a look at what is next for the sectors in Australia and New Zealand, including perspectives for Brazilian and US beef production.

Head of Eblex trade marketing Mike Whittemore will outline the latest foodservice and trade development in the UK. Head of consumer markets Jane Ritchie-Smith will look at consumer trends, while Peter Hardwick, head of trade development, will look at export trade developments and opportunities.

Coordinator of the agri benchmark network Claus Deblitz said: “Global Forum 2013 provides the platform for agri benchmark to present an overview of what’s happening in the global beef and sheep sectors. It also covers UK-specific topics, giving delegates a complete picture of the key trends and developments in the industry.”

While Eblex and AHDB head of inputs and production economics Mark Topliffe said: “The forum showcases to industry stakeholders the breadth of data and expertise available to them to have up-to-date sector information and exchange of ideas and research projects, which can help with business or trading decisions.

“It is invaluable in giving perspectives on a range of subjects, including global costs of production, standards of different production systems and global market trends. We hope the forum will also provide UK delegates with a comprehensive understanding of the key markets that affect them, either directly or indirectly.”
