UK exports carry on rising in June

UK exports continued to increase into June, with fresh/frozen pork volumes up 26%, to 18.4 thousand tonnes, on the year earlier. Chinese shipments continued to be the main driver behind this growth, with volumes up 81%. Exports to Ireland were also up 28%, while shipments to Denmark, largely for re-export, increased 30% on June 2015. While smaller in absolute volume, higher value US exports more than doubled. The value of UK exports increased ahead of volume, up 30% to £45.9million, on June 2015. A growth of shipments to China capitalising on the strong pig price, coupled with increased shipments of higher value cuts to the US, assisted this value growth.
