Northern Irish meat processor WD Meats has secured approval from animal health authorities in Singapore to start supplying meat products in the country.

The company is one of three from the UK to secure approval and is now looking to supply premium steak products to Singapore supermarkets.

WD Meats managing director Francis Dillon said: “While we haven’t secured any business yet from the lifting of the ban on UK beef by the Singapore authorities in December, we are now actively marketing our range of premium steak products and aiming to finalise arrangements with suitable representatives in what could be an excellent marketplace for us.

“The agreement to lift the ban means that beef processors will now be able to export cuts of de-boned beef from cattle aged 30 months to Singapore. It follows pressure from the UK government and gives us a strong position in the market.”

The three UK processors could see initial business amounting to around £10m.
