However, given the ongoing economic downturn it is a sign of fresh meat’s continuing popularity among British consumers that the decline was not significant. Vegetarianism did not grow to any significant extent in 2012 and, while people may still be looking for the cheaper cuts of meat, meat itself remains popular, although it is too… Euromonitor International’s Meat in United Kingdom report offers a comprehensive guide to the size and shape of the market at a national level.

A key piece of infrastructure, the facility also powers and is the terminal for the Forties pipeline, a key conduit for around one third of North Sea crude. Grangemouth is also connected to an import terminal. Keywords: By BEN WINKLEY LONDON — Workers at Scotland’s Grangemouth refinery have voted to strike, raising the prospect of disruption to North Sea crude oil supply. Should the strike go ahead, the 210,000 bpd facility — which is Scotland’s only refinery — would be forced to shut. A key piece of infrastructure, the facility also powers and is the terminal for the Forties Pipeline System, a key conduit for around one third of North Sea crude. Grangemouth is also connected to an import terminal on Scotland’s west coast. Unite, the United Kingdom’s biggest labor union, said that on an 86% turnout some 90.6% of workers voted for industrial action short of a strike, with 9.4% voting against, while 81.4% voted for strike action and 18.6% voted against. The dispute is over the treatment of a labor union representative. Grangemouth is jointly owned by Ineos Group Holdings and PetroChina. Neither were immediately available for comment.

United Kingdom oil refinery strike vote raises prospect of North Sea disruption

We see a challenging environment for the UK wheat industry in the near term owing to increased competition for exports from the Black Sea region, decreasing direct payments to farmers as a result of Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) reform, and diseconomies of scale on the back of a shift of the EU ethanol policy towards non-food biofuels. – Beef consumption growth to 2016/17: 8.5% to 1.4mn tonnes. This will largely be a result of population growth, as well as economic recovery and the continued popularity of Sunday roasts. – Milk production growth to 2016/17: 6.9% to 14.1mn tonnes. We expect production to recover slightly; however, we note that EU CAP reforms could make UK farmers less competitive. – Real GDP growth: 1.1% year-on-year (y-o-y) in 2013 (from 0.2% y-o-y in 2012). – Consumer inflation: 2.0% y-o-y in 2013 (down from 2.9% y-o-y in 2012). – BMI universe agribusiness market value: 1.8% y-o-y decline to US$27.3bn in 2012/13, forecast to grow on average 1.8% annually between 2011/12 and 2016/17. View Full Report Details and Table of Contents Industry Outlook Wheat harvest declines in the UK look set to drag on overall EU estimates, as wet weather has reduced plantings and forced the EU’s third largest producer to import record amounts of milling wheat for the 2012/13 season. We already see downside risks to our outlook for UK wheat production to rebound to 15.2mn tonnes in 2013/14, and it appears that the crop could be facing steep declines, as 25% of winter wheat plantings were lost due to wet weather. The declines in UK production are likely to keep Paris wheat futures supported over the coming months. Dairy producers will be affected by lower production prospects and high costs depending on their product segmentation and geographies. We believe Dairy Crest has been particularly affected because of its focus on fresh milk in the UK. The company announced a GBP17.1m loss in FY2012 as the performance of its milk processing division, from which it gets most of its revenues, was particularly poor.
