The British Chamber is pleased to see the growth of UK meat exports in the Philippines, particularly in pig meat, said Chris Nelson, BCCP Executive Director and Trustee.

Previously in 2020, UK pork exports to the Philippines reached 7,900 tonnes and in 2021 it was recorded at 25,200 tonnes, a significant increase of 200%, proving strong demand for British pig meat. Meanwhile, for British beef, in 2020 the exports were recorded at 4,200 tonnes and in 2021 it was at 5,400 tonnes, up by 29%. 

With the recent success of the three-day Philippine-British Meat Trade Mission last May 17-19, 2022, the Chamber aims to further support the British meat exporters to strengthen their long-standing relationship with Philippine importers. 

“We’re looking to establish long-term relationships since the UK is already the sixth-largest in terms of export to the Philippines. This is going to grow the business for beef and pork by over 200%. We’re looking to build upon that and have further growth going forward.” Nelson said. 

The Trade Mission was attended by nine (9) top UK meat exporters namely: Dunbia, Foyle Food Group, Dingley Dell Pork, ABP Food Group, Woodheads, Buitelaar Group, GPS, Norwest, and Pilgrims Pride.  Over 30 Philippine companies and restaurant owners participated in the Business-to-Business Meetings with the British exporters. 

Nelson also highlighted the cooking demonstration at the newly opened SawSaw Restaurant spearheaded by Chef ‘Sau’ del Rosario showcasing how UK pork from Dingley Dell Pork. 

Overall, the Chamber hopes to continue its goal to mainstream British pork and beef in the Philippines and help promote trade and investments between the UK and the Philippines.
