The latest analysis in the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB) Prospects for UK agri-food exports series revealed potential prospects for further exports, particularly for offal, in Central America.

It also highlighted the possibility of the UK expanding the amount of commodity-level red meat to Ghana, Côte d’Ivoire and South Africa, as well as more premium cuts to the latter. Longer term opportunities for dairy also exist in South Africa as a larger cheese importer than other Sub-Saharan countries.

“Our latest analysis concludes our series of Prospects for UK agri-food exports analyses launched in January this year," said Amandeep Kaur Purewal, AHDB Senior Economist. "The series offers a comprehensive insight into where our exporters can maximise opportunities for red meat and dairy products over the next decade."

“The ultimate aim of our analysis is to provide insight and analysis for our producers and exporters to understand the opportunities and challenges of trading in different parts of the world," she added. "Cultivating these opportunities adds value back into the supply chain on behalf of our levy payers while supporting the UK Government’s ambition to become a ‘Great Trading Nation’.”

AHDB's latest analysis completes a deep dive into opportunities for red meat, dairy and cereals exports on a region-by-region basis which also includes Europe, Asia, North America and the Middle East and North Africa (MENA).

“We know there is interest across the world for British products and we need to fully understand the market dynamics and demands to make the most of the opportunities if producers are to continue to maximise returns," said Phil Hadley, AHDB International Trade Development Director.

Export development is one of AHDB's key strategic objectives, working collaboratively with industry and government, to cultivate further opportunities for its red meat and dairy sectors.
