The Seventh EBLEX Export Conference is aimed at beef and sheep producers and processors interested in getting into exports, as well as those already involved but wanting to grow their operation and find out about new markets.

Speakers at the half day event, on Wednesday, June 22, at the Stoneleigh Park showground, near Kenilworth, in Warwickshire, include EBLEX Sector Director Nick Allen, Head of Export Services Jean-Pierre Garnier, Head of Trade Development Peter Hardwick, Rémi Fourrier, of AHDB France, and Export Marketing Executive Susana Morris. Also on the programme are Pim Haasdijk, of Green Seed, in The Netherlands, and Paul Morton, of ARA.

Topics to be covered include opportunities in China, the Dutch beef market, halal and food service in France, the Caribbean market and a market report on beef, lamb and offal exports.

“The EBLEX Export Conference has become a fixture in the red meat industry calendar and a valuable opportunity for all of those involved in – or wanting to be involved in – the export of beef and sheep meat to get together to learn about latest market developments, make key contacts, discuss how to make better returns and get better at selling specific cuts to where the markets are,” said Jean-Pierre Garnier, EBLEX Head of Export Services.

“EBLEX is working hard to ensure that more export markets are open for domestic producers and putting those who want to export in touch with foreign markets looking for our products. This conference is part of that ongoing work.”

Exports of beef from the UK rose to £321 million in 2010, the highest level since 1995, while lamb exports brought in £319 million.
