Latest AHDB analysis has shown that Central and South America and Sub-Saharan Africa could provide opportunities for British pork exporters.
The research also revealed opportunities for increasing exportation of pork to Ghana, Côte d’Ivoire and South Africa.
Dr Amandeep Kaur Purewal, AHDB senior economist, said: “Our latest analysis concludes our series of Prospects for UK agri-food exports analyses launched in January this year. The series offers a comprehensive insight into where our exporters can maximise opportunities for red meat and dairy products over the next decade.
“The ultimate aim of our analysis is to provide insight and analysis for our producers and exporters to understand the opportunities and challenges of trading in different parts of the world. Cultivating these opportunities adds value back into the supply chain on behalf of our levy payers while supporting the UK Government’s ambition to become a ‘Great Trading Nation’.”
The latest release is the final instalment in AHDB’s series of analyses of opportunities for red meat, dairy and cereals exports on a region-by-region basis, which included Europe, Asia, North America, and the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). Export development is a key strategic objective for AHDB.
Dr Phil Hadley, AHDB international trade development director welcomed the analysis: “We know there is interest across the world for British products and we need to fully understand the market dynamics and demands to make the most of the opportunities if producers are to continue to maximise returns.”
Export opportunities for UK producers is detailed further in AHDB’s region-by-region analysis Prospects for UK agri-food exports, launched earlier this year, examining both the opportunities and challenges of trading in different parts of the world.
