Global opportunities in focus at AHDB Meat Export Conference

11/05/2016

Developments in international markets and innovation for growth will be in the spotlight at the 12th AHDB Meat Export Conference.

The event, which is free for AHDB Beef & Lamb and AHDB Pork stakeholders, will take place at the Hilton Hotel, Stratford Road, Warwick, on June 29.

It will 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.

Delegates will also hear from Marek Schejbal, from the British-Polish Chamber of Commerce, on export opportunities in Poland. Kevin Mimura will present on Nippon Ham in Europe and the market in Japan.

As well as a general export update and a focus on challenges in France, delegates will also have the opportunity to network and participate in a question and answer session.

Jean-Pierre Garnier, AHDB Beef & Lamb export manager, said: “2015 was undoubtedly a challenging year for exports, given the strength of Sterling and difficult market conditions. We have, however, made a positive start to 2016 and the export conference is the ideal platform for us to discuss latest market developments and opportunities for growth.”
