British Pork Finds New Market in China as Brexit Looms: Chart

(Bloomberg) -- Exports of British pork to China have almost quadrupled since the Asian nation started allowing the shipments in 2012 to meet increasing demand. The world’s biggest consumer of the meat now accounts for almost a fifth of U.K. exports, and it’s likely to become more important as the U.K. seeks new markets while Brexit talks drag on. “With Brexit uncertainty surrounding future trade between the U.K. and EU, it is crucial for the U.K. to find and exploit as many opportunities presented in the Far East,” said Jonathan Eckley, head of exports for Asia-Pacific at the Agricultural and Horticultural Development Board.
