British Chamber of Commerce Philippines in partnership with the UK’s Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB) gear up for its first face-to-face event after two years through the Philippine-British Meat Trade Mission which is set to run from May 17-19 at the Dusit Thani Hotel in Makati City.

According to Chris Nelson, British Chamber of Commerce Philippines Executive Director and Trustee, this three-day business opportunity event is set to bolster the trade relationship between the Filipino and British companies.

“The Philippine-British Meat Trade Mission is a very exciting opportunity for both the Filipino and British agri-business sectors. Of course, our team in the British Chamber of Commerce Philippines are also excited as this is our first on-ground event since 2020,” Nelson said.

“We were able to host more than 300 webinars in the chamber since the pandemic. With this Meat Trade Mission, I am confident that there will be perfect business matchings that will be done between both companies from the Philippines and the UK,” he said.

“The Philippines has many known world-class and global quality processed meats, not to mention that Filipinos love to eat and meat lovers, too. In the UK, the beef industry has strong demand globally and has earned an excellent reputation for high standards of animal welfare and food safety,” he explained.

“This is a very good opportunity for the companies in the meat processing industry to look at what the UK has to offer to serve their needs for their raw materials as one of the markets we are looking at. Already, the UK pork exports have gained popularity in the Philippines, with this 3-day business opportunity event, the UK also wants to promote British beef in the Philippines for the discriminating Philippine market,” he added.
