Exporters prepare for inward mission from Mexican contingent

In a few weeks' time, the UK will host a two-week reapproval inspection audit from Mexico for British pork. To help exporters prepare, AHDB and the UK Export Certification Partnership (UKECP) held a workshop on Tuesday 19 March 2024.

Exporters prepare for inward mission from Mexican contingent

Highlights from the workshop included a presentation from the Food Standards Agency (FSA), discussions on food safety audit preparations, and learnings from the previous inward mission from Mexico. The team at Cranswick plc also shared their insights, experiences and valuable tips from the previous audit.

The workshop received positive feedback from participants.

Barry McKillion, Trading Manager at Sofina Foods, said:

"I thought it [the workshop] was very helpful. These events are always a great networking opportunity, and I was able to speak with some of the other attendees on this and other export topics that we wouldn’t otherwise have the opportunity to do. A great session all round; your help and assistance are greatly appreciated".

Anthony Pargeter, Technical Manager at Pilgrim's Pride Ltd., said:

"The Mexico workshop was very helpful, and it was good to hear from the various sectors that contribute to pork exports. Valuable information was shared from food business operators, cold stores, Defra, the FSA and especially from AHDB. The workshop information has been shared with the team and should put us in a good place for the actual audit".

George Taylor, General Manager at Quality Pork Processors Ltd., said:

"Thank you once again for arranging this helpful day. It was great to meet up with some former contacts and colleagues and to meet new ones. The content of the sessions was very good quality and very clear. Our presence there was invaluable, and we would have been at a huge disadvantage if we were not in attendance, or the event did not take place".
