Marking the largest ever shipment of animal feed beans to be exported by port operator ABP in East Anglia, the product will be transported to the port city of Bari in Italy. The field beans, which are used as a protein source in cattle, pig and poultry diets, will travel aboard the vessel MV ZEALAND BEATRIX.

James Maw, Glencore Agriculture UK managing director, said: “The ability to make a timely early shipment of such scale through ABP’s Port of Ipswich has proved to be especially important for eastern counties growers.

“Completing a 12,000t shipment brings essential economies of scale that can make UK beans attractive for global buyers that have a core demand for beans in their feed rations, compared to the cost of conventional 4,000 tonne carriers,” he added.

“That has translated into better prices for East Anglian growers, and helping to assure a viable return from the crop for farmers.”

Andrew Harston, short sea ports director, said: “We are delighted to be working with Glencore and their terminal partners Clarksons Port Services as well as Ipswich Grain Terminal to bring together this record 12,000t export shipment of beans.
