Now Chinese To Eat Pakistan’s Meat; They Eat Everything: Pak Allowed to Export Meat To China

China is Pakistan’s one of the best friends. Do not fear Chinese especially when one gets approval to export anything to China especially in eatables.

Pakistan won meat export approval from China-which is the biggest meat importer and producer of meat- after a private company established a heat treatment facility to remove virus, if any, from export consignments.

Company Secretary Abdul Quadir in a notification sent to the Pakistan Stock Exchange (PSX) announced on Friday ,

“The Organic Meat Company has received approval and has been granted registration by the Chinese Customs authorities for export of heat-treated beef to China.”

The company has pioneered the heat treatment process during which foot and mouth disease (FMD) virus can be removed from beef.

“This process enables the company to access more markets for value-added meat products,” he said.

“We have set up a 300-ton per month heat treatment facility (for China and similar markets),” CEO Faisal Hussain said. “We would consider expansion when needed.”

As far as export potential to China is concerned,

“I would say sky is the limit. China remains the single largest … importer of meat in the world,” he said.

He pointed out that Russia, China, Indonesia and South Korea were the markets which imported heat treated meat from around the world.

“We are also working to win Russia’s approval (for meat export),” he said.

The Organic Meat Company’s share price dropped 1.09% or Rs0.34 to close at Rs30.92 with 2.87 million shares changing hands at the PSX on Friday.

Pakistan’s meat and meat preparation exports stood at only $216.2 million in the first eight months of current fiscal year.

They rose 2.6% compared to exports of $210.73 million in the same period of previous fiscal year, according to the Pakistan Bureau of Statistics (PBS).

China is the largest trade partner of Pakistan with bilateral trade touching $20 billion in the previous fiscal year.

However, the trade balance was heavily in favour of China whose exports to Pakistan had 85% share in the bilateral trade volume.
