Welsh organic producer Trioni has become the first UK dairy farm to secure organic certification to export to China and Hong Kong.

Founder Laurence Harris said accreditation would allow it to lead the way for the UK organic industry to expand globally. The Soil Association estimates China’s organic market at around £5bn.

Trioni began exporting its milk to China and Hong Kong in 2012 but had to seek organic certification in response to new Chinese rules.
