Portugal will be able to export pork to China

The Portuguese authorities have made official the opening of the Chinese market to Portuguese pork.

Monday 17 July 2017 (7 days ago)

Portugal will be able to start to export pork to China after the signing, last Wednesday, of an agreement between both countries that the Minister of Agriculture, Mr. Luís Capoulas Santos, hopes that will balance the prices. Mr. Capoulas Santos remembered that it was in the pig sector where he found the most complicated situation when he was appointed Minister, because for many years the producers had been losing money due to the production costs being higher than the market price.

According to the Minister, this process has been slow and complex, because «the Chinese authorities are very demanding from the food hygiene and safety viewpoint, and this implied visits and the verification of the production premises».

The negotiations with China will go on with the aim of exporting fruit, such as citrus fruit, grapes, apples and pears, as well as honey and pork processed products. Currently, Portugal exports wine and dairy products to China.
