Chinese market opens to Irish beef exports

Minister for Agriculture Michael Creed announced that Chinese food authorities have approved a number of Irish meat plants to export beef to China and that the market will open within the coming days.

“I understand that the Chinese authorities will list a number of our beef establishments within the next few days,” the minister said in a statement.

“The opening of this key market presents an excellent opportunity for the Irish beef sector, from farmers through to processors”.

“Opening and developing new markets is also a key part of our response to the uncertainties arising from Brexit,” he said.
