Dalian Hanwei to resume egg exports

  
  

A leading Chinese egg exporter said on Monday (Dec 15) that it will resume its egg exports after a thorough overhaul following the discovery of melamine contamination in chicken feed.

 

Hanwei Chicken Farming Ltd based in Dalian City in northeastern China's Liaoning president Han Wei said a lesson was learnt from the scandal and the company has purchased melamine test equipment to prevent a reoccurrence of the contamination.

 

Under the supervision of quality and customs quarantine authorities, samples of Hanwei's products have tested melamine-free for a month. The company was allowed to resume its egg exports on Wednesday (Dec 10).

 

Han said that the company's overseas orders did not diminish after the scandal.

 

A joint investigation of the Chinese Ministry of Agriculture and the city government of Dalian has discovered the melamine-tainted eggs in September 6. The company had used melamine-tainted feed.

 

The chicken farm has more than 3 million layers in stock. Its production capacity of fresh egg reached 58 million kilogrammes yearly.
