Canadian pork products will be back on Chinese grocery store shelves after Canada secured the first certification agreement to allow pork imports to China, based on significant negotiations recognizing OIE standards.

In spring of 2009, China banned pork imports from H1N1-affected countries. In December, Prime Minister Harper was successful in getting this ban lifted on his mission to China. Since then, Canada has been working to develop supplementary certification requirements. This successful negotiation will now allow Chinese imports of Canadian pork. China is an important market for Canadian pork valued at $45 million in 2008. Discussions on the Chinese importation of Canadian live swine are continuing and Canada is hopeful for early resolution.
