The Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD) has issued a new regulation calling for stricter meat import inspections.

The regulation stipulates that only these enterprises will be able to export meat into Vietnam. Certificates of safety must be enclosed with import consignments, according to the new rule.

MARD said that in the first five months of 2010, frozen meat imports (poultry and meats) increased three-fold over the last months of 2009. Pork imports alone have reached 500,000 tons, consisting mainly of heads, feet and tails.

However, this year’s outbreaks of the Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome Virus, also called “Blue Ear,” has stalled containers of frozen chicken and pigs at ports in the northern city of Hai Phong, the border town of Mong Cai in the north and Ho Chi Minh City. Containers of frozen chickens and pigs are also stuck at Dinh Vu Port in Hai Phong City.
