UK ready to export its sheep meat to India

The new agreement, which covers a range of sheep meat cuts, is expected to build on this by over £6 million in the next five years.

The deal has been secured following a detailed process of inspections and negotiations by the UK government, working with the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB) and UK Export Certification Partnership (UKECP).

UK's Department for Environment Food & Rural Affairs (DEFRA) announced in a statement that British exporters can take advantage of the market as soon as the administrative listing process is completed and export certification is made available.

The UK’s sheep meat exports were worth £386 million to our economy in 2017, with lamb meat alone reaching 69 export markets.
