Irish beef granted access to US market after 15-year ban lifted
Ireland first EU state to export beef into US since EU imports banned after BSE crisis
Irish beef has gained access to the valuable US market for the first time in almost 15 years.
Irish beef is to be sold into the US market for the first time in more than fifteen years, the Department of Agriculture has said.
The US banned imports of European beef following the BSE crisis in the late 1990s. Ireland will become the first EU state to return to the US market since that ban was lifted in March.
