British beef could soon be exported to the United States following agreement by Government officials. It is thought that the export deal could be worth around £66 million to British producers over the first five years of the deal.

The export deal is possible following the agreement by the US of equivalence of standards on the UK’s disease control measures following a three-week inspection in August 2019. The inspections included tours of five beef sites, four pork and lamb as well as several laboratories. The agreement is the crucial step in allowing beef to be exported and means that once the final administrative details have been carried out, British beef will be allowed to be shipped to the US.
