Liffey Meats has become the seventh Irish meat processor to get approval to export to China, it has been confirmed.
The decision follows initial approval last year for six other Irish beef processing plants including: BP Clones; Donegal Meat Processors (Foyle Meats); Slaney Foods International; ABP Nenagh; Kepak Clonee; and Dawn Meats Charleville.
A further tranche of 12 applications from Irish beef processors have also been submitted the Chinese Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs for approvals. A decision is still awaited on these applications.
