China Meat Association sees potential pork imports from Australia


There is great potential for China and Australia to cooperate in pig farming and facility investment, thus facilitating future exports of Australian pork to China, said the China Meat Association (CMA). A delegation led by Li Shuilong, CMA Executive President, visited Australian pork producer Rivalea and processor Don KRC recently, making it the first business tour to the Australian pork industry by its Chinese counterparts.

“Though the pork production in Australia is very small compared to China, it could offer demanding Chinese consumers with premium pork products,” the CMA said. China’s pork imports rose 138% to 762,359 tonnes in the first half of 2016, mostly from Europe.
