US pork exports to South Korea continued its momentum in April 2018, with volume and value recorded at 25,370 tonnes and USD 74.1 million, up 74% and 81% respectively from the same period last year. This was according to a report by the US Meat Export Federation (Usmef).

This pushed up US pork exports to the country to date to 94,888 tonnes valued at USD 276.1 million, up 44% and 55% year-on-year. Usmef credited the strong growth in consumer demand and duty-free access under the Korea-US Free Trade Agreement for the strong and expanding presence of US pork in the East Asian country.
