Well done on an excellent insight

Liz Murphy and I offer to you and your team our congratulations on the content and presentation of the Global Trading supplement.

We thought that it was produced with great skill and understanding of the problems and opportunities in the international meat market.

Many articles were very well researched and presented. I must mention James Aufenast's two excellent pieces 'Striking the balance' and 'How to export'. These can be complex areas, but were presented very clearly.

Adam Baker's review of global meat companies was excellent and the rundown of the top 10 was very concise and informative. I am sure that many in the industry will file that for long-term reference.

The American ambitions in Europe by Chloe Ryan covered this sensitive subject in detail with a good historical perspective and the right balance of hope for future development.

Finally, your coverage of Richard Brown's Gira work on South America was very well done and gives us all a balanced review of this very important part of the world.

In my many years of involvement in the industry, I cannot recall writing to the Editor with such positive comments.

Please thank your team for their interest and professional approach to the international meat scene.
