Ireland first became a major exporter of meat in the late 19th century, when fresh beef exports began to the Smithfield markets of Victorian London. Today, Irish beef is exported to over 60 countries worldwide and is listed in over 85 retail chains throughout Europe.

Irish beef is also increasingly chosen by some of the worlds’ leading restaurants, with more than 90 Michelin Star Chefs now in the Chefs’ Irish Beef club. Exports of beef, sheepmeat, pigmeat and poultry products account for a third of Ireland’s overall food and drink exports and are valued at €3.77bn.
