South Korea's pork imports surged in April from a year earlier as a foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) outbreak affected domestic supply, government data showed Thursday.

According to the data by the Korea Customs Service (KCS), imports reached 39,000 tons in April, up 24.1 percent from 32,000 tons a year earlier.

The outbreak, which began in late December and continued into April, led to a decrease in domestic supply, the KCS said.

The United States remained the largest exporter of pork to South Korea, accounting for 32.6 percent of the total, followed by 17.6 percent for Germany and 10.8 percent for Spain.
