Hong Kong meat trip deemed a success

The biggest British meat mission to Hong Kong has been hailed a success by Bpex.

Both Eblex and Bpex worked with UK company Trade and Investment and took 18 meat companies to the Hong Kong meat exhibition HOFEX, forming a 41-strong contingent.

Various sectors of the UK meat industry were covered by the group, which included sausages, bacon, offal, beef jerky and pork scratchings.

Export manager for Eblex and Bpex Jean-Pierre Garnier said: “It was an extremely successful event and the firms that attended all did good business. Hong Kong is a wealthy place so there is plenty of scope for us to export top quality beef, lamb and pork.”
