The Chief Director of the National Health, Food Safety and Food Quality Service (SENASICA), Enrique Sánchez Cruz, announced that this week the first shipment of pork from the state of Jalisco will be exported to Korea.

The head of the agency within the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock, Rural Development, Fisheries and Food (SAGARPA), said this step to enter the Asian market represents a further step in the effort of producers and authorities on health and safety to reach new market niches.

The first container will ship from Federal Inspection Type (FIT) Establishment 467 located in Atotonilco, Jalisco. This entity is an addition to others that export pork and beef to Asian countries.

"It's a historic event for the pork industry in western Mexico as it opens the Korean market to the region and it certainly will in the medium term result in a profound change for the livestock industry" he said.

The state of Chihuahua has a Market FIT license for exports of pork and beef for the same Korean market. In addition to this, there are two FIT entity facilities that have nitiated the process for the export of meat to the Asian country.

In January 2012, 500 thousand heads of pigs were processed in the FIT establishments which are authorized for export to international markets.
