UK exports of beef are up nearly 50 percent compared to the same period a year ago, new figures from HMRC show.
The UK exported 12,600 tonnes of fresh and frozen beef in March, up 14% from February and up 46% compared to the same month a year ago.
While significantly higher year-on-year, the volume was closer to the amount exported in 2019 and 2020.
This meant that the UK shipped 30,800 tonnes of beef during the first quarter of the year, 53% more than the volume shipped during the same period a year ago.
Within this, 9,000 tonnes were sent to Ireland, 7,000 tonnes to France and 5,600 tonnes to the Netherlands.
