Beef from the UK could be on China plates by Christmas

In June, Chinese government officials signed a protocol agreement to ship beef from the UK for the first time in 20 years marking the end of a ban following the BSE outbreak.

Today, approval has been granted for full access in a deal estimated to be worth around £230 million over the first five years.

Four sites have been cleared to export beef in the first instance, with shipments expected to arrive by the end of the year.
