A post-EU referendum assessment of UK meat exports, with contributions relating to China, Japan and Poland, is on the agenda for discussion on Wednesday this week during the Agriculture & Horticulture Development Board (AHDB) meat export conference in Warwick.
The event, which is free for AHDB Beef & Lamb and AHDB Pork stakeholders, will “examine developments in international markets and innovation for growth”, according to an AHDB preview statement issued a week ago.
“During his closing address at the conference on June 29, AHDB chairman, Peter Kendall, will outline key industry opportunities and challenges following the referendum, the result of which could have major implications for the UK meat trade,” said AHDB.
“The conference will also include an update on developments in China by Karen Morgan, Agriculture Councillor at the British Embassy in Beijing, and a presentation on managing the complexity of market access by Dr Phil Hadley, AHDB Beef & Lamb head of global supply chain development.
“In addition, Marek Schejbal, from the British-Polish Chamber of Commerce, will outline export opportunities in Poland, while Kevin Mimura will present on Nippon Ham in Europe and the market in Japan.
“Delegates will also hear an update on the French market and will have the opportunity to network and participate in a question and answer session.”
