China and the UK reached a protocol on August 22 in Beijing, paving the way for British pig meat into the China market.

The protocol on the quarantine and veterinary hygiene conditions for the export of UK pig meat to China was signed by Li Changjiang, Minister of General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (AQSIQ) and Lord Digby Jones, UK Minister for Trade and Investment.

According to the press office of the UKTI, the agreement will be worth 19 million pounds of pig meat export a year. AQSIQ officials will inspect to hog houses in the UK very soon before trade begins.

The press office also confirmed that British exports of pigs for breeding, cattle hide, sheep skin and greasy wool to China resumed as of early August this year. China stopped importing those products from the UK last year because of foot and mouth disease in the UK. Imports in those categories are set to be worth 40.25 million pounds a year.
