Brexit and the red meat industry, three months later
"Exit from the EU and trade in red meat: the reality three months later" is the title of the seminar that ASHB will organize on March 31. Although it will obviously approach the subject from the British perspective, the seminar can be of great interest to companies that work with that market or want to do so.
Already last November, AHDB organized the webinar 'Exit the EU and trade in red meat: a view from Europe', where it was analyzed how Brexit is affecting the European red meat industry and what the main companies were doing meat from the continent to prepare. Three months after the end of the transition period, this follow-up webinar will assess the state of the trade relationship between the EU and the UK, with a particular focus on how the EU-UK trade agreement has impacted the red meat traders on both sides of the Channel.
The speakers, representatives of the meat industry in Great Britain, Ireland, and continental Europe, will discuss the situations experienced in recent months, what they have meant to them and how they see the future of their business in this new context. Specifically, they will participate:
Ian Stevenson, Executive Director, Northern Ireland Meat and Livestock Commission;
Rizvan Khalid, Managing Director of Euro Quality Lambs;
Knud Buhl, Director, Danish Bacon & Meat Council;
Cormac Healy, Senior Director, Meat Industry Ireland;
Tania Gesto-Casas, Policy Manager, AHDB.
