Premium beef, lamb, pork, sausages, ham and bacon products from Suffolk and Essex headed to Hong Kong this week for one of the leading fine dining exhibitions in Asia.

The East Anglia meat exporters joined others from throughout the UK as farm levy payers’ group the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB) took part in the Restaurant and Bar Hong Kong (RBHK) show at the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre.

The three-day event, which started on Tuesday, September 5, attracts thousands of food and drink service professionals principally from Hong Kong and Macau.

It has grown over the years to become a key event for keeping up-to-date with the latest products, trends and developments, and attracts top chefs, food professionals and key decision-makers.

Six meat exporters and three importers joined AHDB at the event to showcase a selection of beef, lamb and pork products including East Anglian exporters C & K Meats of Eye with its beef, lamb and pork, pork products, Dingley Dell of Woodbridge, Suffolk, with its pork products; Wicks Manor, producers of pork, sausages, bacon, of Tolleshunt Major, Maldon, and Broad Oak sausages of Hatfield Broad Oak, near Bishop’s Stortford.

AHDB’s head of livestock export trade development Jean-Pierre Garnier said the show, always well attended, was in a key target market for UK meat exports. The aim was to promote “everything great about our beef, lamb and pork to decision-makers from the industry”.

Hong Kong is a growing market for UK meat exports with latest figures showing a four-fold increase in chilled beef exports as well as a 91% rise in chilled lamb. Sausage exports to the country have also increased by a third, while three brands of British pork are marketed on the territory.

Food minister George Eustice said: “This trade show is a great opportunity for our producers to network with potential buyers and drive exports to Hong Kong, which are already worth more than £375m.

“The UK’s meat exports are growing globally – with recent agreements for UK pork to China and beef to the Philippines – and our high quality meat is already one of the biggest exports to Hong Kong.”
