§ Mr. Jack
MAFF has its own export promotion division, specifically designed to help UK agri-food exporters win business worldwide. My ministerial colleagues and I also take a personal interest in promoting UK capabilities abroad. This year we propose to take business teams to Mexico, Brazil, Indonesia, India where opportunities for UK exports exist. We are also representing UK interests at agri-food exhibitions in China, Poland, the Baltic States, the Netherlands, Germany, Russia, Brazil, Colombia, Thailand and Kazakhstan.312W
In addition, Food From Britain, which is partly funded by my Department, has offices in key European markets as well as North America and has a substantial programme of action in support of British food exporters. Ministers give support by attending and speaking at major food and drink exhibitions around the world.
