Saudi Arabia lifts ban on UK lamb exports

Tags:


Saudi Arabia authorities have this week lifted the 20 year-long ban on sheep meat from the UK, which had been put in place after the BSE crisis in the UK.

Exports may begin as early as next month after export certification has been finalised and released.

The agreement comes following negotiations and inspections carried out jointly by Defra, the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB), FSA, UKECP, DAERA and APHA.

Sheep farmers and meat producers will be able to take advantage of the increasing demand for UK food and drink in Saudi Arabia. Total UK exports were worth more than £152m last year. Top exports in 2017 included sweet biscuits (£13m), chocolate (£10.9m), butter (£6m) and cheese (£5.1m).
