Camel milk to Europe

Camel milk exported to Europe?

The UK Daily Telegraph says:

The European Commission has provisionally approved plans by two Middle Eastern camel farms to export the milk to Britain.

United Arab Emirates-based firm Camelicious says it is only waiting on checks by EU health and hygiene inspectors and hopes to begin exports to Europe next year.

Looks like a small example of how the local economy is diversifying.

While it probably won't be more than a fad, sold in health food shops, it could be good business for Camelicious.

The story's here.

Camelicious chocolate is fantastic! Camel milk is really tasty too - great for people with allergies and doesn't taste as different as goats milk. And it's such fun to wind visitors up with!
