The Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Simon Coveney TD, welcomed the agreement which has been reached with the veterinary authorities in Australia which will allow for the importation of pigmeat from Ireland.

Australia has been a target market for the Irish pigmeat industry for many years and Minister Coveney said that he was delighted that the industry now had an opportunity to export to this important market, which last year imported over 149,000 tonnes of pork, valued at approximately €400 million. With a population of almost 23 million, over 2 million of whom claim Irish ancestry and a per capita consumption of 24.5 Kg of pork per year, Australia offers Irish pork processors exciting new opportunities. Conservative industry estimates are that up to €20 million worth of Irish pork could be exported to Australia on an annual basis.
