Industry to focus on meat exports post-referendum

The aftermath of the EU referendum will enter the spotlight at the 12th Agriculture & Horticulture Development Board’s (AHDB) Meat Export Conference, to take place in Warwick on 29 June. 

The conference is free to AHDB Beef & Lamb and AHDB Pork stakeholders and will discuss developments taking place in international markets as well as innovation and growth in the sector.

AHDB chairman Peter Kendall is expected to outline key industry opportunities and challenges following the EU referendum – which could have significant impacts on the meat industry.

Jean-Pierre Garnier, AHDB Beef & Lamb export manager, commented: “Our annual meat export conference will bring together key industry players to discuss the opportunities and challenges as we move forwards in the post-referendum climate.”

Also taking to the podium will be Karen Morgan, agriculture councillor at the British Embassy in Beijing, who will deliver an update on developments in China while Dr Phil Hadley, AHDB Beef & Lamb head of global supply chain development, will provide a presentation on managing the complexity of market access.

Marek Schejbal of the British-Polish chamber of commerce will outline export opportunities in Poland.

The Japanese and French markets will also be subject for discussion.
