Philippines to export organic chicken to South Korea
Organic poultry imports from the Philippine have been given approval by the South Korean government.
This was bared Tuesday, Aug. 2, by Philippine Agriculture Secretary Emmanuel Piñol, who recently met with South Korean Ambassador Kim Jae Shin.
"We can now sell our chicken products to them (Koreans) since the facilities of the San Miguel Corporation have already been approved and the province of Maguindanao has started the halal chicken production. The chicken can be raised, using commercial rearing facilities, but the feeds are totally organic," Piñol was quoted as saying in a sunstar.com report.
He said the "all-natural" feeds would be formulated by an Islamic engineer in conformity with halal standards.
