Outbreaks of bird flu and foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) caused exports of poultry and fresh pork to drop sharply last year, government data showed Wednesday.

According to data by Korea Agro-Fisheries & Food Trade Corporation and the farm ministry exports of fresh pork plunging 35.6 percent on-year, but the drop was offset by the 74.6 percent surge in processed products such as bacon and luncheon meats. Overall, pork exports including both fresh meat and processed products actually edged up 0.23 percent in 2014 from the previous year.

At present, Hong Kong is the main market for local pork, as the special administrative region only buys meat from animals raised in areas such as Jeju Island that has not affected by the animal disease.
