China is ready to import more Danish pork

 
 

China has signed a protocol with the Danish Ministry of Food and Agriculture, allowing Danish export of heat-treated pork products to the Chinese market.

 

Until now Danish export businesses have only been allowed to export fresh and not processed pork to China.

 

The Danish Minister of Foods, Eva Kjer Hansen, discussed the idea of such a protocol with the Chinese Minister for Imports and Exports Li Chingjiang in a meeting in Beijing in April. The discussions have now resulted in the signing of the protocol and the Ministry can now take the next step which is to get the exports started.

 

In recent years Denmark saw a massive increase exports to China, as the country can now afford imported pork products.
