AHDB webinar to give UK meat businesses tips on exporting to Canada

A webinar hosted by the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB) will provide advice for red meat businesses on exporting to Canada.

The webinar will take place on October 19, 2023and will provide an overview of the key points for the businesses to consider, including tips for route to market, compliance and customs clearances.

AHDB said participants will also be given access to information about imports, sanitary and phytosanitary (SPS) measures, labeling requirements, documentation, and checklists to help ensure they are in the strongest possible position to maximize the export opportunities that Canada presents for UK pork, beef and lamb.

The webinar will feature a presentation from Ontario-based consultancy MCS Associates Inc. which provides advice to companies on regulatory and quality compliance of their products.

Market access manager, Ouafa Doxon, said: “It is imperative for our exporters to continuously meet import requirements to maintain and protect our market access to Canada.

“The aim of our webinar is to equip them with the most up-to-date insight and information to help them achieve their export ambitions in this market.”

Exports to Canada

AHDB said its Prospects for UK agri-food exports: North America report has highlighted that Canada is a net importer of lamb, with low levels of tariff protection for imports.

The value of beef shipments from the UK to Canada in 2022 were worth £13.1 million – up 77% on the previous year.

The value of sheep meat shipped to Canada increased 160%, up from almost £1.9 million the previous year to almost £5 million, while pork export value remained stable at £7.7 million.

“Our analysis has highlighted that Canada is likely to offer improved opportunities for UK red meat exports over the next decade,” Doxon said.

“In particular it will present further opportunities for premium red meat products that are differentiated from conventional domestic production.”

Levy pays have said they value AHDB’s work on export development and wish to see more of it, she said.

“This webinar forms part of our wider international market development work to help our levy payers benefit from the opportunities the Canadian market presents.

“I would therefore urge any UK red meat exporters with an interest in trading with Canada to register for the webinar.”

Those interested in attending the webinar should register via the AHDB website.
