Meat exports from Scotland plunge due to Covid-19

Tags: ,


Exports of Scottish red meat and offal have fallen by almost 8% as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
Total exports of Scottish red meat and offal fell from about £82m to £75.5m between August 2019 and July of this year, which sent exports down by about 2% below the five-year average.

The survey by the red meat levy board found total beef sales fell by around 12% in value and volume to a total of £41m, with the board attributing the demand to “the near-closure of export markets for a period in mid-to-late March, when public health measures introduced to control Covid-19 led to delays at EU borders and saw export sales destined for the foodservice sector severely disrupted”.
