A regularly updated library of facts and figures about the meat industry is now being published online by BPEX and EBLEX on a free access basis for levy payers and industry stakeholders.
Called “Meatstats”, the content is supplied by Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB) Market Intelligence and includes abattoir information, global trade details, national balance sheets, livestock numbers, trade and seasonality of markets.
The new service replaced the former “Meatfax” series of fact sheets which, in the past, was faxed by the Meat and Livestock Commission to subscribers, covering both UK and global figures.
BPEX/EBLEX senior analyst, Stephen Howarth, said: “Meatstats are a valuable resource for the meat industry in the UK and globally, containing key information on an array of subjects.
“They are the go-to place for industry facts and figures, complementing the other resources we already have available online via the EBLEX and BPEX websites. They will be updated as appropriate.”
