BEIJING (MNI) - China will continue to increase the import of meat products
and draw down on government reserves to ease a pork shortage and meet rising
demand ahead of the Chinese New Year in late January, spokesman Ministry of
Commerce spokesman Gao Feng said at a briefing on Thursday.
Meat imports are expected to exceed six million tonnes this year, including
over three million tonnes of pork and its by-products, Gao said. Importers are
encouraged to expand sourcing origins, he added.
The average wholesale price of pork in 36 cities was CNY43.66 per kilogram
last week, a decrease of 16.5% from early November, due to increased number of
hogs, frozen meat and imports, Gao said.
