Mexico's pork exports to China increase in value and volume in first half of 2021

 


Mexico's agri-food and fishery exports to China in the first half of 2021 totaled $399 million dollars, an increase of 16.4% compared to the same period in 2020, when they totaled $342.8 million, according to Mexico's Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development.

 

Pork sales were first in the ranking of agri-food product exports, with sales of $139.9 million dollars, an increase of 9.0% in terms of value, and 18% in volume (51,739 tonnes), according to figures from the Department of Agriculture in Japan.

 

The federal agency indicated that negotiations between China's General Administration of Customs and Mexico's National Agri-Food Safety and Quality Service (Senasica) concerning pork are progressing in the update of the existing bilateral protocol.

 

The aim is to include pork viscera in the list of products allowed for export to China and to authorise new Federal Inspection Type Establishments (TIF) to be able to send shipments to the country.
