BPEX, in conjunction with UK Trade and Investment, is offering grants to exporters of pig genetics, to help them bring potential customers to the UK for the Pig and Poultry Fair on May 12 and 13.

As part of the inward mission there will be a short briefing at the International agriculture and Technology centre at Stoneleigh park on the first day of the show.

BPEX Chief Executive Mick Sloyan said: "There are very large new markets out there which will become more open when the EU is enlarged.

"Britain has a worldwide reputation for the quality of its breeding stock and these are markets we should be tackling."

The grants offer help with air fares plus 3500 per company and further information is available from Henry Lewis
