South Korea has approved Irish beef exports, paving the way for the industry to start exports from seven approved processing plants. This approval is a significant achievement for the Irish beef sector, with South Korea being the highest per-capita meat consumer in Asia.

Ireland can currently export beef to 70 countries, with a focus on expanding to Vietnam and Thailand.
