EU exports: Beef and veal (million tonnes)

Of this, 33.5 % (over 344 000 tonnes) was exported to the UK; the drop in exports in 2021 was caused mainly by reduced exports to the UK.
The value of exported beef (excluding fats) for 2021 stood at €3.8 billion, 38.6 % of which (around €1.5 billion) was represented by the UK. While the volume of beef decreased by 9.8 %, its value grew by 2.9 % compared with the previous year.
