Hungary has become the latest country with import access to China’s meat market. China received its first shipment of 25.68 tonnes of frozen pork knuckles at the Tianjin port recently. This comes after Hungarian Minister for Agriculture Sandor Fazekas signed a protocol with Zzhi Shuping, head of the General Administration of Quality, Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine, which licences imports.
According to GlobalMeatNews, Hungary is also keen to ship beef and milk to China. The imports from Hungary may be timely given China has stopped pork imports from its main Eastern European pork suppliers.
