British Lamb Imported into US for First Time in Over 20 Years

Last week, lamb produced by Dunbia at their site in Carmarthenshire, Wales, was the first British lamb to be exported to the US in over 20 years.

This follows a deal agreed upon last year between the two nations which led to The Small Ruminant Rule (which banned British lamb imports) being rescinded. This win for British farmers builds upon previous recent success in delivering the first beef export to the USA in decades and the first-ever export of British pork to Chile.

It is estimated that the US market will be worth £37 million in the first five years and open up a new market of over 300 million American consumers.
