Ireland to significantly increase beef exports to the USA

Ireland will be able to significantly increase its beef exports to the USA following an agreement between the two countries that could be worth millions of euro annually to the Irish agriculture industry

Exports of Irish beef to the USA last year were estimated at over €14m and US authorities have agreed to allow Ireland become the first EU member state in more than 15 years to export manufacturing beef there.

This is beef that is typically used in burgers and processed foods, and almost one million tonnes of it is imported by the US every year.

This opens up the prospect of food chains like McDonalds using Irish Beef in the USA, something they have been doing for a long time in Europe, buying beef from 18,000 Irish family farms

This will be a huge boost to Irish farming.
