Australian leaders of the meat industry to actively lobby their governments to put pressure on the UK to accept products is currently prohibited under EU legislation after the British exit from the EU.

Among the meat products offered for export to the UK are beef hormones and “Burnt goat head”.

Ministers of both countries met last week to discuss the future of their trade relations, amid concerns that the Australian government could force Britain to lower food standards.

Trade Minister Liam Fox has long been discussed in Australia as the key trading partner of Britain, when it will cease to be part of the EU.

The Department of international trade stated that it “will not reduce nutrition, animal welfare and environmental protection as part of any free trade agreement”.

“Maintenance is the right thing for our consumers and supports the world famous British reputation for high quality products,” the representative told the independent.

But Kierra Box, quarter, and month campaign to bring in “friends of the Earth” (foe), said that the government was “saying one thing and doing something completely different”.

“The government can continue to claim that they protect our environment and health, but in reality, these promises are far-fetched and unconvincing.”

Investigation of the foe have revealed the extent of lobbying the Australian meat and livestock industry in the UK is approaching.

Among their demands was to insist that “technical barriers” to trade are removed after the UK’s relationship with the EU ends.

However, farmers and environmentalists concerned about the impact of removing such “barriers” can be both on British farms and the quality of food.

“A British exit from the EU provides an unprecedented opportunity for the Australian red meat industry to improve its trade relations with the UK,” Andrew McCallum from meat and livestock Australia (mla) wrote in a letter to the Australian Parliament in 2017.

“A further liberalization of the import regime in the UK than is currently in place, would put significant benefits not only for the Australian red meat industry but for the UK importers, wholesalers, distributors, foodservice and retail operators as well as consumers.”

David Larkin, General production Manager at Thomas foods International, explained to the inquiry in October last year that the UK once accounted for 80pc of Australian exports of red meat to EU accession.

Although it is still considered important in the UK currently stands at just 1.5 PC of the export volume.

Australian meat industry seeks to re-establish itself as a major exporter of meat in the UK, but is currently limited by the EU rules and quotas, which in their opinion, are unfair.

“The market for [Britain] continues to establish itself as a valuable market and is one reserved number of barriers to trade”, – said Mr. Larkin.

“These barriers to trade are subsidies, tariffs and quotas and technical barriers to trade in the form of PGP [a hormonal growth stimulant -] prohibitions and directives processing from the point of view of equivalence processing facilities.”

Growth hormones that have been banned in the EU since 1981 due to health problems are used on about 40% of Australian cattle and was in the running for more than three decades.

During the hearing of intraday trading of the Subcommittee at the end of 2017, Jason strong, Chairman, EU and UK Red meat industry Taskforce that the growth of carbon trading the UK will have the opportunity to export not only higher quality products but also the lowest quality.

According to agricultural news farm service online, Mr strong told the Committee Australia may send low cost products, including “the Weary head of the goat.”

In the industry believe that the UK’s exit from the EU will open new opportunities for its meat industry, and the Australian Parliament ended in October that “a British exit from the EU, UK standards and conformity bodies have expressed greater intention to continue to cooperate with the Australian standards and infrastructure compliance”.

In the UK there are concerns about what this could mean.

“Our standards adopted in the EU, perhaps some of the highest standards in the world,” John Andrews, a farmer from the South of England Devon and chair of environmentally friendly crops network, told the independent.

He emphasized care for the lower animals and environmental standards in countries such as Australia, and the impact on English farmers.

“Sheep and beef imports that the nature of risk is depressing the UK beef price, for which our manufacturers could not stay in business if this happens on a larger scale is not what I want to see Liam Fox trade,” he said.

Said MS field: “in the face of the future that will force us to recognize dodgy meat we never considered before, is not what the people voted for”.

“We are proud of our food safety and environmental standards. These guarantees don’t just magically exist, they were deliberately put in place knowingly and actively controlled.

“If the UK does not establish our stand for the future of food right now, it’s not just Australia pushes them to reject the meat on us.”
