Taiwan to give £50m boost to British pork as export market opens

The deal means UK exporters can tap into overseas demand for parts of the pig carcase UK buyers do not commonly purchase, meaning more income could be generated.

 

Defra said the new agreement, secured by UK government, Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB) and UK Export Certification Partnership (UKECP), should be worth more than £50 million over the next five years.

 

It follows a record level of UK food and drink exports last year.

 

Food minister George Eustice said: “Access to this new market in Taiwan is great news for our farmers and producers and gives a welcome boost to the pork production industry – already worth £1.3 billion to the UK economy.

“This is a significant development for pork exporters and reinforces our reputation for producing high quality food and drink, guaranteeing quality from farm to fork.”

 

AHDB international market development director Dr Phil Hadley added: “We estimate the value to the UK to be in excess of £50m based on current UK export imports in Taiwan, where last year alone imports rose by 26 per cent to US$178.3m, the opportunity could be worth more than £100m over the next five years.”
