Spanish exports of pork to China rose by 32.8% in the first two months of 2019, with a total of 80,776 tons, which has meant a turnover of more than 117.7 million euros, 34.5% more than in the same period of the previous year, according to the latest data from Datacomex, prepared by the Interprofessional of Porcino de Capa Blanca (Interporc).
In particular, the sector has underlined that the Chinese pig meat market is of great relevance worldwide, since it accounts for more than 50% of total world pork consumption. In addition, it is the first buyer in volume to Spain of meat and processed pork, with about 16% of sectoral exports, and the second if measured in value (9.7% of the sectoral total).
An increase that comes after the governments of Spain and China finalized last year a cooperation agreement on phytosanitary requirements to export pork, covering fresh and frozen meat, ham with bone, shoulder, loin, sausage and sausage.
In this way, the interprofessional is carrying out various promotions in China to promote the Spanish pig and facilitate trade exchanges between Chinese companies and Chinese importers and strengthen institutional relations between both countries, in addition to gaining market share. .
