UK - Places are going quickly for this year’s EBLEX annual conference which will showcase domestic and global market opportunities for Quality Standard beef and lamb.

The conference at the Chesford Grange Hotel, Kenilworth, on 2 November will be hosted by EBLEX, the organisation for beef and sheep industry in England, and bring together stakeholders and levy payers to discuss key issues and how to capitalise on trade opportunities.

Ensuring the buoyancy of the domestic market and the longer term global prospects for beef and lamb will be the focus of EBLEX sector director Nick Allen, head of trade development Peter Hardwick, and board member and Blade Farming managing director Richard Phelps. Remi Fourier, EBLEX export manager – France, will look specifically at the important French market for lamb exports.

Professor Robert Pickard, of the Meat Advisory Panel and former chairman the Forum for the Royal Society for Public Health and the Department of Health, will highlight the role of red meat in the diet. Irish Farmers Journal livestock editor Justin McCarthy will outline the Irish perspective on beef and lamb production.

The conference, free to EBLEX levy payers, will also include question and answer sessions, with EBLEX staff on hand to discuss technical issues and demonstrate other aspects of the organisation’s work.
